High-value assets consistently in volatile environments will always present major risk challenges. That's why marine and transport risk scenarios can be incredibly complex. Talking to specialist marine risk consultants gives you the confidence to be bold, innovative and responsive to change in the business environment.
Our philosophy is simple. We are here to serve you, and that means powering your ambitions.
Howden brokers take the time to get to know your cargo, your businesses, vessels, and fleets; taking a hands-on personal approach means we can arrange quality cover at a cost-effective price.
If you’re transporting cargo or if you are building, owning, consulting or operating at sea, you need an insurance partner with an in-depth understanding of the issues you face, to help you streamline and save.

We believe that our role is more than just protecting our clients from risk. As your risk consultants, we exist to empower you to grow your business by removing risk obstacles - the emphasis is always on the quality of cover, ready to stand strong when you need it most.
