The Circle Group

In 1991 the Circle Group was established by Anthony Norcott in Meriden, Warwickshire, to provide insurance and risk management solutions for commercial clients.

1994 saw the acquisition of a general brokerage in Glasgow, our position in Scotland was further strengthened in 1997 with the acquisition of a broker in Perth, which today forms the nucleus of our Private Clients Division.

In 1999, having outgrown our premises in Meriden, we moved to the centre of Coventry. By this stage, group income had grown substantially and our subsidiary Circle Financial Services Ltd was formed to focus on the provision of Financial Services. In 2001 and 2002, further acquisitions of financial services brokers were made in London to increase our presence in this area.

In 2005 our growth again made it necessary to relocate our Head Office, this time to Holyhead Road, just a few hundred yards from our previous location.

In 2007 we expanded further through the purchase of Eurorisk Consultants Limited (originally founded in 1973), who changed their name to Circle Insurance Services (Nottingham) Ltd in April 2008. In July 2008 further acquisition saw the group grow to its current position, with 5 offices situated throughout the United Kingdom.

In 2012 we have added to our London office by introducing a Commercial Broking Team and a London Market department providing access to the competitive London market facilities for brokers.

Our philosophy is to provide our clients with the level of expertise and negotiating power that they would expect from a large organisation combined with the friendly and bespoke level of service they would only get from a small local company.

We are an ambitious company eager to grow but mindful to plan our investments to maintain the future financial stability for the group, our staff and ultimately our clients. Each of our clients is critical to our success and we thank them all for their ongoing support.
