Aviso Broking acquires NSW-based AR
Aviso Broking has announced it has acquired the business of Corporate Authorised Representative Trent Mockford.
As part of the deal, Mr Mockford’s firm, which previously operated under Brookvale Insurance Broking, will merge with Aviso Broking’s Sydney operation. Mr Mockford’s group places Gross Written Premium (GWP) of $6 million.
Aviso CEO Jeff Moule says the acquisition marks an important step for the company’s continued expansion and growth across NSW.
“Trent Mockford and his team have been successful in building a great business since starting as a Corporate Authorised Representative in 2009,” Mr Moule said.
“There is some great alignment here, both with our current customer base, our people and our office locations.”
Mr Mockford, who will move his operations from Sunshine Coast to North Sydney, says the deal is a “natural fit” for his business to benefit clients further.
“There are natural synergies between what we already do, and this feels like being a local broker, with autonomy to build and grow but on a larger scale, with systems and processes behind us,” Mr Mockford said.
Aviso Broking is the largest broker in the Aviso Group, with 11 offices across NSW and Queensland and GWP of $160 million.
