Hart is based in Helensburgh, northwest of Glasgow, and specialises in providing clients with travel insurance, a range of business and personal insurance, as well as financial services such as advice on pensions, estate management, and private healthcare.
The company was established in 1965, and currently has a team of eight advisers led by the company’s former owner, Alistair Hart.
“We are delighted to be joining forces with Phil Barton and the wider Partners& team particularly as they expand at pace in Scotland,” said Hart. “Our team are excited for the future of our long-established brokerage and look forward to continuing to provide a professional client service with a personal approach.”
Ewan MacDonald, Managing Partner for Scotland at Partners& added: “I’m thrilled to bring such a highly regarded team and business into the Partners& family. As we continue to grow our presence in Scotland and across the UK, Alistair’s experience and insight will prove invaluable. We’re making outstanding progress as we continue to build an unrivalled team across Scotland and Hart Insurance Brokers are a fantastic addition to our business.”
