We have been a client of Howden for over 7 years. Throughout this period we have received a very good level of service from the team. We have put Howden under competition on more than one occasion and they have outperformed their competition, not only on price, but on the breadth and depth of their policy wording. I would certainly recommend Howden to my peers in the industry.
