The shareholders of Hamilton Fraser have sold the business to Global Risk Partners (GRP).

Hamilton Fraser provides specialist insurance and risk management for the private rented property sector and the cosmetic and aesthetic practitioners industry, with a reach across the UK. Since its inception, the business has grown substantially, becoming a trusted and highly profitable risk management solutions business serving its customers, including the UK government. Post completion, which is subject to regulatory approval, Hamilton Fraser will become part of GRP’s high growth digital division and all of its employees, including co-founder and CEO Eddie Hooker, will be integrated into the GRP group.

Established in 2013, Global Risk Partners is one of the UK’s largest independent insurance intermediaries, looking after almost half a million personal and commercial clients across the spectrum of their industry, sector and specialist insurance and risk management needs.

Parties
“I have loved working with the team at Oaklins Cavendish! Hamilton Fraser is more than just a company to me. For me to sell, any deal had to deliver value but also see the business find a great new home. The team always listened and provided their advice on these points and how best to achieve what I was looking for. I am delighted to have found the perfect partner in GRP with their support.”
