The MacDonald Group was formed in January 2016 when MacDonald Partnership, which was established in 1978, joined forces with Rankin Risk Solutions. The aim was to better reflect our structure and to emphasise the strengthening of our Insurance and Financial Services proposition. Most importantly, the group allows for each of our businesses to continue to do what they do best – building great relationships and providing a valuable service to their clients on a local level. Continuity for our clients across the group is of the utmost importance and therefore whilst there have been some structural changes, each of our 5 businesses have retained their own identity and staff. Our clients across the group can rest assured that they will still be provided with a personal service by the people they have built strong relationships with over the years. We can now tap into the expertise and resources available throughout the group, which has been an exceptional benefit to our clients.
