About Howden

Howden Germany

At Howden Germany we have a clear objective: to provide our customers the best insurance protection available. To do this, we focus on quality, comprehensive services and a spirit of partnership.

Howden Germany and its specialist brokers operate as an end-to-end business platform. We offer outstanding insurance expertise and local know-how combined with the resources of a global provider.

In Germany we support and advise thousands of clients every year – from multinational corporations to small, regional companies. We manage a total premium volume of over 380 million euros. Together we form the sixth-largest insurance broker in the German market.

We know what we’re good at – and we’re proud of it.

What sets us apart

People first

No limits

Collective power

Force for good

All of this is true to our roots. In 1994, three London brokers decided to go into business together by establishing a company they could be proud of, with the potential to grow in the long term. They formed an insurance brokerage centred around independence, employee ownership and a focus on client’s needs.

From that merger in London, we have long since blossomed into a global entity – but one that is still true to our original approach.
