JMG Group makes its tenth acquisition of 2023


JMG Group is marking its tenth acquisition this year as it completes a deal with Cheshire-based Blackfriars Group.

Blackfriars Group employs 20 people at offices in Sandbach and Gibraltar and specialises in liability and business insurance for small to medium-sized businesses across the UK.  Steven Lewis, director of the £7m premium business, says it will be ‘business as usual’ for the firm, the team and their clients as the business embarks on its next phase of growth as a JMG Group company.:


“One of the many benefits of joining the JMG Group is that the majority of the administration, business management and compliance functions will be centralised, which will free up more of my time to focus on clients and supporting the team here to develop their roles and careers with us,” he says.


“For anyone dealing with us, it will be business as usual. The company will continue to trade as Blackfriars, clients will deal with the same people in our team, and we will continue to specialise in liability and business insurance for businesses UK-wide.


“We wanted to ensure the business would be in the best hands moving forward, and I can safely say that my experience of the JMG Group has left me in no doubt that we are doing exactly that. I’m looking forward to working more closely with the JMG team to continue growing our business.”


JMG Group CEO Nick Houghton says, “I’m delighted to welcome Steven and his team to the group, and we look forward to supporting them as they continue to build on the company’s success. Having them on board further strengthens our presence in the North West, and the team’s track record of generating online leads will add another dimension to business development within the group.”
