Market-leading Professional Indemnity experts.
We have one of the UK’s most respected Professional Indemnity teams. With over 130 insurance professionals placing over £135m premium a year we represent many of the UK’s leading professional services firms. We focus on specific industry sectors rather than trying to be generalists.
Proven expertise across the following sectors:
- Accountants and Actuaries
- Approved Inspectors
- Financial Advisers and Mortgage Brokers
- Insurance Brokers
- Testing and Inspection
We work with sole practitioners as well as some of the world’s largest professional services firms and on major construction projects.We are market leaders in the accountancy, financial and property & construction sectors and we are recognised for our ability to look after businesses operating in higher risk or niche areas.
We offer exclusive facilities for several professions and are amongst the top five producers of premium to approximately 40% of the UK’s Professional Indemnity Insurers, which allows us to negotiate hard on premiums.
I really appreciate all the support and assistance you have provided to myself and the business in general over the past 10 years or so. I know how difficult things can get and you have always been extremely effective but human as well. Really appreciated and a rare combination in our line of work.
The Howden claims team is comprised of highly skilled individuals who manage to combine technical excellence in handling claims with the ability to communicate cogently and credibly with underwriters when coverage issues arise. The team has a wealth of experience and is highly regarded in the insurance market and beyond. In the provision of support and in advocating the cause of its clients, the team is second to none, in my experience.
As an intermediated business dealing with high quality brokers it was important to us that we worked with a high quality partner and individuals on our own needs - we more than met that objective with Howden. As a start-up developing into an award winning successful business our needs changed but at all times we were given strong professional advice and was very appreciated by us. I have had and would have no hesitation in recommending Howden to our peer group or elsewhere.
I was impressed by the way Howden took time to understand our business asking quite searching questions before they targeted suitable insurers. They certainly got us a good deal by comparison with others and one which had an policy period extension option. They make a point of staying in to touch and respond rapidly and efficiently to any enquiry. I look forward to working with them on renewal in the near future.
I am very pleased to be working with Howden who have provided us with a comprehensive liability insurance package which, in my opinion, perfectly suits our business. I am confident that I can rely on them for advice and assistance during the policy period together with a competitive premium. This gives me confidence in Howden’s products and a sense that your business is valued. We are more than happy to recommend Howden to other firms.
