J Bennett and Son (Insurance Brokers) Ltd acquires Oxford based Insurance Brokers, Mathews Comfort & Co Ltd

J Bennett and Son is delighted to announce the acquisition of the Mathews Comfort’s general insurance arm with effect from 18th December 2017.

 

Established in 1851 Mathews Comfort has been arranging insurance, managing risk and providing financial advice for more than 165 years. As independent brokers specialising in a personal service for their business and private clients, they have the same approach and core values as J Bennett & Son. Their existing team including Directors Russell Thynne and Philippa Jones, will continue to run the business from their iconic Oxford premises.

 

The ownership of Mathews Comfort Financial Services which is a separate entity, remains unchanged and moves to new premises in North Leigh from January 2018 where it will continue to provide the same Financial Planning services.

 

J Bennett and Son MD, Peter Sutcliffe said “We have long admired Mathews Comfort for their professionalism and are absolutely thrilled to be involved with Russell, Philippa and their team. Bringing in Mathews Comfort gives us a combined 275-year heritage and I look forward to working together to ensure that both our companies remain firmly part of the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire landscape”.

 

One of the core principles in our business is “‘A policy of partnership” with our clients being at the heart of what we do, and Mathews Comfort have precisely the same approach so it’s a perfect marriage. Their business perfectly complements our strategic vision for the future.

 

Peter Bird, Chairman of Mathews Comfort said, “This is an exciting time and secures Mathews Comfort as an independent broker for the future, and is a ringing endorsement of our strong team for all their hard work. For our clients, it will be business as usual with us continuing to provide them with a professional, expert service.”
