Insurance services firm Charles Taylor has taken substantial stakes in two Standard Club businesses in a deal that will allow it to offer managing agency services to new syndicates.

It has acquired a 50.1 percent stake in Almond One and 100 percent of Almond Two as part of what it called a ‘turnkey’ deal to allow it to offer managing agency services.

The managing agency’s first client is anticipated to be The Standard Club’s planned new syndicate 1884.

Almond One has gross and net assets of £1.5 million as at February 19, 2015 and through its subsidiaries comprise almost all the components required to establish a turnkey managing agency at Lloyd’s.  Almond Two has gross assets and net assets of £3 million as at February 19, 2015.
