The UK is one of the largest insurance centres in the world - only Japan, China and the USA surpass the UK in size.  Over the five years to 2018-19, Insurance Agents and Brokers contributed revenues of £15.7bn to the UK economy.  

We work with a diverse range of clients in this space all across the UK. Our client base ranges from firms who collect commissions between £800,000 and £10m.

We recognise that there are significant changes in this sector, ranging from the integration of automation and artificial intelligence into claims processing processes, to the ongoing consolidation in the market, and the ongoing challenges around ensuring regulatory compliance.

Our specialised team are well positioned to assist with these challenges, as well as providing a full suite corporate service inclusive of internal and external audit, tax and advisory services. We are also well placed to advise on mergers and acquisitions in this space.

We have a dedicated client assets team who undertake client asset audits, in addition to providing a range of other assurance services, helping clients ensure they have robust client asset processes in place. 

Johnston Carmichael is an active member of PKF International, the eleventh largest network of accounting and business advisory firms globally. This gives our clients access to insurance specialists in all the major insurance markets around the world. PKF Littejohn are recognised as market leading in the London broking market and we partner with them on a number of projects.
