Bryte Insurance Company Limited (Bryte), a proactive business risk specialist announces its acquisition of Holmes Underwriting Agency (HUA), a specie insurance expert and independent coverholder at Lloyd’s of London.

A focus on establishing partnerships that deliver mutual value and customer excellence at every touchpoint, is an important aspect of Bryte’s business strategy. Accordingly, this acquisition is aimed at further accelerating Bryte’s growth ambitions; expanding access to wider markets, capabilities and networks that enable more inclusive risk management solutions for businesses.

“It is a great privilege for HUA to be joining the Bryte family.

HUA will be integrated into Bryte’s Jewellery, Fine Art & Specie Division with effect from 1 December 2017. The policies of existing HUA customers will not be impacted by the acquisition.
