Part of the world’s largest independent insurance broker
In 2021, Howden announced the acquisition of CHB Insurance Brokers (CHB), one of the pre-eminent Property & Casualty brokers in the Baltic region as Howden’s first step into the Baltic market. As a company with similar values, know we have found the right home to continue our journey.
Partnering with Howden offered us better access to new insurance products and new industries, enabling us to grow as part of an international insurance broker. This was a major cross-border transaction in the Estonian insurance market and provides us with the opportunity to meet the demands of companies in the region.
Our ambition is to satisfy the demand for insurance in sectors such as trade credit and financial guarantees, as well as a focus on cyber insurance. Furthermore, with the support of Howden Finland, we are able to bring in ground-breaking insurance and service solutions for housing associations.
