Broker Lark has unveiled plans to double its gross written premium to £25m by 2010.

The company said it would push growth organically and through acquisitions. But chief executive Graham Lark ruled out spreading growth beyond Lark's London and South East base.

"There is a danger of spreading yourself too thinly - most of our clients are in the South East," Lark told Insurance Times.

He said the broker's young management team also worked to the company's advantage. "The younger team has greater levels of energy which presents us with a great opportunity to push forward," he added.
