What our clients say

Cornerstone Risk

“Taking the leap and selling part of our business to Ethos Broking has been the right thing for us, both financially and for the business itself. We continue to remain with this business that we love and have worked so hard to build, still being a part of its continued success and direction, but now as Partners with Ethos Broking. With Ethos’ access to capital and business support, we can now focus on growing Cornerstone Risk as a business and continuing to enjoy and be a part of its ongoing success.”

Scott Mitchell, Director, Cornerstone Risk
Fassifern Insurance Services (FIS)

“Selling a majority stake of our business to Ethos Broking has been one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. We were attracted to Ethos’ flexible M&A approach which gave us the option to remain part owners of the business, while at the same time being able to enjoy the immediate financial benefits that came with the sale. The Ethos team immediately assisted in looking after and taking away the headache of our business’ back-office functions like Finance and Payroll, statutory financial reporting and marketing to help us further grow the brand in the marketplace. From start to finish, the M&A process was seamless and since joining forces with Ethos Broking we’ve been absolutely thrilled with the outcome - it’s truly a wonderful thing to see our business, which we have worked so passionately to build, is now growing in leaps and bounds thanks to the backing and support of a multi-million-dollar business behind it.”

Our approach to acquisitions


Hubs are insurance businesses that have a growth focus, but don’t necessarily have the access to capital to fund growth without putting their own bricks and mortar on the line.


Spoke businesses are smaller sized insurance brokerages that can be purchased by a Hub business and integrated into that Hub business’ existing operations.
