Our clients benefit from the sector specific knowledge and market influence that has made Howden into one of the leading insurance powerhouses in the World.

Here are some of the key types of Insurance protection we manage:

Professional indemnity insurance
Protect your business against claims for loss or damage from clients, customers and other third parties. We handle the whole process in-house, from placement to claims.

Directors and officers insurance
Sometimes, claims are made against individuals, rather than your company as a whole. Directors and Officers insurance can cover against financial losses that result.

Cyber insurance
Cyber insurance can cover any losses you suffer if your business falls victim to an attack. But its main purpose is deliver a strong professional response when an attack hits.

Public & Employers liability insurance
If your employees make a claim against your business, employers liability insurance will help you meet any resulting costs, such as legal fees and compensation.

Business property & contents
Properties and contents are still major assets for even the most tech-savvy, online-based businesses. Business property & contents is there to help you pay for repairs or replacements if your assets are damaged or stolen.

Employee benefits and wellbeing consulting
Unsure how to get the most of value from employee benefits and well-being strategies? Our expert consulting services can help you go above and beyond for your staff.

Legal expenses and insurance and litigation funding
It’s almost impossible to avoid some kind of legal complication when running your business. Legal fees can mount up quickly, and the right cover can help protect you financially against associated costs.

Even if you don’t see a particular type of cover here or your issue is particularly complex or challenging to place, we almost certainly can help you get the protection you need.

We thrive on solving problems and challenging the status quo. We’ll always work the market as hard as we can to make sure your policy is competitively priced and as comprehensive as possible.
