Hines Associates (“Hines”) are delighted to have supported Right Choice on its acquisition of the Fresh motor brands: Autosaint, Ladybird and First Van and Motor

Right Choice Insurance Brokers Limited (Right Choice) has purchased the Autosaint, Ladybird and First Van and Motor brands from Fresh Insurance Services Group Ltd (Fresh) for an undisclosed sum. Fresh is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kingfisher UK Holdings Limited (Kingfisher).

The acquisition augments the existing Right Choice proposition with a broader footprint and greater knowhow in Telematics, Young Driver and Commercial Vehicle. Right Choice’s expertise, particularly in motor insurance, together with its unique proprietary software means that it will be ideally positioned to continue to provide an excellent service to Autosaint, Ladybird and First Van and Motor customers.

Mike Joseph, CEO of Right Choice, said:

“I am delighted that we have been able to acquire these award-winning brands together with the team, both will bring new strengths and experience to the group, including telematics and commercial vehicle expertise. Following this transaction, Right Choice will now have offices in both Romford and Redditch and we welcome our Right Choice Midlands team into the family. We hope that this is the first of many acquisitions for Right Choice Group, enabling us to find the best products and prices for every customer’s needs. We thank Kingfisher for their help in achieving a smooth transaction as we do our great team of advisers at Hines Associates and Stephenson Harwood.”
