International Risk Consultants will operate as stand-alone entity

R K Harrison Holdings, the parent company of R K Harrison Insurance Brokers, has completed the acquisition of Indemnity & Risk Management, the parent company of International Risk Consultants (Europe).

IRC Europe is the leading independent trade credit insurance broker in the UK. The company provides consultation and tailored coverage to a wide variety of UK & International clients against the risk of bad debt due to the insolvency or protracted default of their customers.

Paul Bridgwater, chief executive officer of R K Harrison Holdings, said “IRC Europe has developed as an extremely strong business, recognised as a leading expert within this specialist field. As such they are an excellent addition to R K Harrison’s group of outstanding specialist teams and businesses and we are delighted to have them join us.

"IRC Europe will operate as a stand alone entity within the enlarged group, recognising the strength of the IRC Europe brand in their specialist field. I am confident that both R K Harrison Insurance Brokers and IRC Europe will benefit from significant cross selling opportunities as we bring each party’s expertise, products and services to bear for the benefit of our existing and prospective clients”.
