Saving Private Equity
How we helped a fund defend allegationsRead the case study
Howden is unique because our workforce is the majority shareholder group.
Having employees and management as the majority shareholder makes us a bit different. Client satisfaction is personal to us, quite literally.
Which means we do the little things well. Because little things make a big difference.
Like appreciating the huge impact changing a few words in a policy document can make.
Or editing wordings to your advantage before you sign.
And never making you chase us to get things done.
Because it’s our business.
We don’t say “no”, we debate “how.”
Then we get the job done.
Transferring risk for multinational corporations, advising SMEs on smart decisions or designing bespoke services for individuals, we use our knowhow to solve tough problems.
As part of the Hyperion Insurance Group, we have access to a huge global community of brokers and risk managers, with over 10,000 local experts all over the globe, both through Hyperion and our Howden One partner network.
Leveraging our strong reputation with insurers to negotiate the best possible solutions for our clients, we use every resource at our disposal to get you the results you need.
At Howden, senior brokers take a very hands-on approach with client work – a large proportion of them have 10-15 years’ experience in their specialist subject. We make sure their skill and insight is readily available for you to benefit from.
Brokers can only represent your interests properly when they precisely understand them. Educating underwriters about your exact needs is a big part of getting you the most competitive deal.
Luckily, we have a head start with specialist brokers in a vast variety of sectors and types of insurance:
Accident & health / commercial crime / construction / cyber liability / directors' & officers' / employee benefits / financial institutions / general corporate & commercial / general liability / kidnap & ransom / life / marine / motor / personal lines / political risk / product liability / professional indemnity / property & real estate / surety / structured trade credit / trade credit & bonds / warranty & indemnity
Every client relationship we enter into, we want it to last.
At Howden we work hard so that clients never want to leave us – we play the long game.
That means keeping in touch, staying up to date any with significant changes in your business and being proactive on your behalf – and that doesn’t mean just trying to sell new products to you.
We use our initiative, to your advantage.
Howden has a remarkably flat and empowered management structure – very unusual for a company of its scope and scale.
What this means for you is that decisions can be made quickly without going through a long-winded, centralised approval process. As a result, we’re set up to react faster to changing conditions and last minute demands.
In short, decision-making processes that are lean and nimble help you take advantage of fresh opportunities as they come along.
