Brightstar reports record H1
The Brightstar Group has reported a record breaking first half of the year in terms of profit, turnover, and written business.
Brightstar’s written business has increased by 21% in H1 2018, turnover by 17% and profit by 15%.
This news comes as Brightstar makes a series of appointments to its buy-to-let and commercial team.
Rob Jupp (pictured), chief executive at The Brightstar Group, said: “It’s been a really incredible first six months to the year for Brightstar.
“We have continued to smash records in growing our business, relaunched our Private Label proposition and set new standards for an employer in our sector in The Sunday Times Best Company to Work For awards.
“And all this has been set against a market that has been dampened by the looming threat of Brexit.
“It’s a really great achievement and testament to the hard work and commitment of our team.
“We are in a strong position and looking forward to the future.
“We also haven’t ruled out any competitor acquisitions and are well placed to make the move if we feel it is right because of our prudent management.”
Brightstar’s high net worth business Sirius Property Finance has also seen growth, with turnover up 46% in the first half of 2019 compared to the same period last year.
Following these figures, the firm has plans to open larger offices for both London and Manchester.
