Midlands merger sees Ernest Shaw take over Kendall White Millar

Ernest R Shaw has taken over Wolverhampton-based Kendal White Millar, creating a consolidated business of 11 registered individuals.

Ernest R Shaw, reckoned to be Birmingham&#39s oldest insurance broker, was founded in 1905. Its IFA arm has an annual turnover of around £2m.

The insurance arm of the firm will continue to be managed from Birmingham while the financial management arm will be based in Wolverhampton.

Managing director David Philips says: “The time was right to take the company to the next level. This acquisition achieves this and opens up new opportunities. Our business was growing but by bringing these two businesses together, we create a powerful force in the employee benefits and personal financial planning sector.”
