“We’re proud that Scott Harrison and his team will continue to grow the company as part of Ardonagh Advisory, one of the UK’s largest set of independent advice-driven businesses.”

Scott Harrison, managing director of The Professional Indemnity Company, added: “The Ardonagh Group has been on an impressive growth trajectory over the past few years and is a business that we know can support our own ambitions for the future and help us further enhance what is already a client-focused, service driven business.

“Ardonagh offers a whole new level of opportunity and being part of a business of its scale is a great day for both our specialist team of staff and our clients, every one of which remains important to us.”
