Intasure and Quotedesk have a new owner

It has been reported yesterday that Blenheim Park Ltd the company that owns Intasure and Quotedesk has been sold to Arthur J. Gallagher International. Intasure is a specialist insurance company for holiday home, second homes and main residence insurance.
Quotedesk offers an extensive range of commercial insurance products. Blenheim Park Ltd is based in Croydon .

Arthur J. Gallagher International is the trading platform for the AJG & Co. group outside of the United States, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. It has seven international operating divisions and offices in six countries. Its UK operation trades as Gallagher London.

According to their press release of the 7th August. "Blenheim Park Ltd. joins the Gallagher Heath Insurance Services (GHIS) business unit reporting to GHIS Managing Director, Des O’Connor. Mike Farley, who heads Blenheim Park Ltd., will be joining Des O’Connor’s GHIS management team as Managing Director of the business, focusing on the continuing growth of the Intasure brand. Russell Wright will also join the management team as the Schemes & Affinity Operations Director and will work across GHIS.

Intasure specialises in holiday homes in 43 countries, including Europe, Turkey, the UAE, Thailand and Cape Verde.

Quotedesk is an insurance broker for SME commercial businesses. The BPL team launched Quotedesk two years ago and Nigel Palmer, who joined GHIS earlier this year from Towergate, will lead the team and drive the growth strategy forward.


Des O’Connor said, “This deal greatly adds to the strength of our GHIS portfolio, whilst allowing for multiple cross-selling opportunities – a number of Blenheim Park Ltd.’s clients are second home owners and may well be in the over-50s market. This allows us to cross-sell our over-50s products from our recent IDL acquisition to Blenheim Park Ltd. clients and vice versa. It’s a great fit and we can’t wait to start exploring the opportunities.

Blenheim Park Limited and Arthur J. Gallagher (UK) Limited are authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority. AJG (UK) Registered Office: 9 Alie Street, London, E1 8DE. Registered No: 05172311 England and Wales.
