Partners& and Hall Insurance Services join forces in the South East

United by their shared values, Partners& welcomes Hall Insurance Services to join its award-winning team. The move is in line with the Partners& strategy to bolster its presence in South East England.

Based in central London, Hall Insurance Services has been trading for more than 25 years. Led by Mark Hall and Andrew Trace, the team has based its success on the simple ingredients: quality relationships, honest, straightforward advice and personal service to both its private and commercial clients.

Mark Hall, Managing Director, Hall Insurance Services, said: “We are very excited at the prospect of joining forces with the Partners& team. We were impressed with the CEO and founder Phil Barton’s clear vision for the direction of the group during the many discussions we have had with him. It is no surprise that Partners& has been voted 2023 Broker of The Year at the recent British Insurance Awards. Hall Insurance’s alliance with Partners& will not only provide increased opportunities in the market, but also an additional level of service which will only benefit all our clients”.

Andrew Trace, Director, Hall Insurance Services, said: “We are delighted to become part of Partners&. Choosing Phil and his team was an easy choice for us – their culture and values mirror ours and we knew they would be the perfect fit. We’d like to say a very big thank you to our fantastic team who have been loyal over the years and who have been instrumental in our continued success. Our team remains integral to our future and providing the same excellent service our clients have enjoyed over the years.”

Mark, Andrew and the Hall Insurance team bring a wealth of experience and a specialism in the property sector which significantly strengthens our expertise in this area within the South East region. The team pride themselves on strong client relationships with a phenomenal retention rate which is testament to the great service and high-quality advice they have offered over the years. This is fully in line with our culture at Partners& and marks another important milestone in our growth plans.
