Right from the beginning, we committed to independence.

Employee ownership at our heart

Around 800 of Howden Group employees are shareholders, with a plan in place to increase that number; by 2020, we aim for 1 in 3 employees worldwide to own shares.  

While we are backed by patient, long-term investment capital, employees will always remain the largest shareholder group. 

This has a noticeable effect on the culture. 

At Howden, everyone has a voice. Ideas are embraced, effort gets rewarded and meritocracy is real. All in an environment where people enjoy their work and have fun. 

We foster an environment where people feel valued and cared for, and enjoy rising to every new challenge.


Empowered to serve you 

The experience we give our clients is everything to us. Our success comes from valuing every client and working to build relationships for the long term. 

This is only possible because of our employee ownership model and sustainable capital. No one is thinking short term. 

We can be completely client-focused because those who are closest to our clients make the decisions.  

We have a noticeably flat hierarchy for a global organisation of such size and scope, and most senior leaders still have hands-on involvement in placing risks.  

Wherever you do business, you’ll be supported by vast experience and deep-rooted local understanding. Our advice in local markets comes from people who live and breathe them.
