We are delighted to have advised JC Flowers and Co on their acquisition of SSL Insurance Group.

Endeavour Insurance Services was founded in 1999 and specialises in the placement of business produced by North American and European agents handled under delegated authorities. 

SSL is a leading marine broker established in 2003 and supports clients in more than 80 countries. As well as its marine expertise, SSL has expertise in many other insurance classes including Cash in Transit, Financial Institution and Political Risk. 

We were engaged to provide lead advisory, financial, tax and regulatory due diligence, financial modelling and tax structuring services. 

We worked closely with JC Flowers to coordinate the two separate acquisition processes and ensure they remained aligned throughout and provided a robust due diligence service focusing on key risk areas. 

We combined our strong sector specialism with the integrated approach taken across our lead advisory, due diligence, modelling and tax structuring teams to advise the buyer. 

Our senior team members were hands on throughout the transaction to ensure that we provided JC Flowers with advice from our most experienced people.
