The deals, which were announced in February, have received regulatory approval. They are the first acquisitions PIB has made since private equity house Carlyle Group took a stake in the broking consolidator in December 2015.

PIB chief executive Brendan McManus (pictured) said: “We are pleased to have completed the deals with Fish Insurance and Cooke & Mason and the associated FCA approval processes. We now look forward to working with our new colleagues in these great insurance businesses and providing clients with the highest levels of bespoke service and expertise.”
