“Aston Lark will add significant value to our product portfolio and to the scale of our business for the benefit of our Irish brokers panel. Robertson Low will further develop its product offering and we are keen to maintain growth through both organic and targeted acquisition strategies. We see Aston Lark as a great fit for Robertson Low, sharing a very similar business ethos, putting our customers at the heart of everything we do.”
Aston Lark has offices throughout the UK and is the 5th largest Chartered Insurance Broker in the UK market, writing over £330m of gross premium and employing over 650 staff.

“We are delighted to welcome the Robertson Low team into the Aston Lark family. We will look to further expand our presence in Ireland with acquisitions over the coming years to cement Robertson Low’s position as one of the leading brokers in Ireland.
