Howden in Oman

Howden’s Broking operations in Oman were established in 2017, when we acquired a majority stake in a local broker called New Generation Insurance and joined forces with Sheikh Saad Suhail Bahwan, Chairman of OTE Group of Companies as the JV partner for Howden Oman.

Based in Muscat, Howden Oman is led by our CEO, Rajiv Arora, an insurance industry veteran with 35 years of experience working in the Middle East and India.

Since 2017, we’ve built a niche local broking business backed up by strong international capabilities.

We offer clients a fresh perspective, giving a local, personal service that leverages our regional and global resources, giving access to specialist products and insurers across the GCC, the London market and worldwide.  

We believe in an approach based on specialty-focused, empowered teams where real industry insight is the key driver for innovative solutions and quality client service.
