CBPE Capital invest in DCL as the business approaches 20 years of underwriting.

DCL, alongside Carraig Insurance Company have had a major investment made into its future by hugely successful CBPE Capital.

The business intends to push on with ambitious growth plans working with our capacity providers, Munich Re Group. The business will continue to be run by our founder and CEO, Phil Cunningham who commented,

“I founded the business almost 20 years ago and we have seen strong growth and consistent profits for our capacity providers, whilst at the same time being at the forefront of product development and service levels for our policyholders and broker partners. In order to continue the businesses development, it was the right time to bring a supportive private equity partner into the business as shareholders. CBPE are experienced investors, with a strong financial services track record, and I look forward to our partnership over the next few years.”
