Finch Group was founded by Peter Finch in 1971 when he left Sun Life Assurance to set up as an insurance broker and financial advisor.

Very much a family business, Peter was joined by his son Paul in 1980 and a few years later by his other son Matthew Finch.

After 27 years, Peter retired from the business in 1998, with Paul and Matthew welcoming Nigel Bull and Vincent Gardner into the partnership to help build the business.

Since then the Financial Services and General Insurance divisions have separated to establish two separate companies within the Finch Group:

  • Finch Financial Services Llp
  • Finch Commercial Insurance Brokers Ltd.

Both businesses have flourished into one of the most respected Commercial Insurance and Financial Services teams in the South, whilst boasting a boutique Private Client team that caters for all of our individual client needs.

In 2015 Finch Financial Services Llp was acquired by Succession Group.

Continuing on the insurance side, Finch Group have now opened offices in Basingstoke, Southampton, Bournemouth, Oxford, London and the Isle of Wight to service clients throughout the south of England.

Driven by both organic and acquisition growth Finch Group has built a reputation as an innovative and service driven business.

Modern day businesses thrive on proactive advisors that represent good value for money, and, with over 5,000 commercial clients and 2,000 private clients Finch Group has proved that it can prosper in a dynamic market place.

In November 2016 Finch Group partnered with Ethos Broking, the UK’s leading network for independent brokers.  This partnership was developed to further grow and transform Finch Group’s reputation as a service driven business.
