Howden Broking, specialist insurance Broker, acquired A-Plan Insurance, one of the UK’s largest personal and commercial lines insurance Brokers.
The combined businesses will be a client champion in the London and regional markets, with entrepreneurship and employee ownership at its heart.
The new partnership brings together Howden’s leading specialty and reinsurance business and A-Plan Group’s best-in-class personal and commercial lines expertise, which it delivers via its established brands including A-Plan and Endsleigh.
Howden Broking is a specialist insurance Broker. We combine the strength of a global Broker with the personal touch of a group with employee ownership at its heart.
Founded in 1994, we have always put our people first, knowing that the P&L will follow. It’s the same talent strategy today and our clients are the ones to truly benefit.
Everyone has a voice. We’re a dynamic group, with a flat global structure and local leadership fully empowered to deliver for clients. Our advice on local laws, traditions and trends comes from people who live and breathe them.
As independent local Brokers, we truly care about our clients’ businesses and work hard to establish lasting relationships. It’s personal.
And we strongly believe in giving back to the communities we live and work in.
For our 25th anniversary, we raised over $1.5m for our Group charity partners and local charities worldwide.
Why work for us?
Being 65% owned by our employees and management makes for a vibrant entrepreneurial culture
We hire talented specialists and give them what they need to make a difference for clients. Always have, always will.
From humble beginnings in London in 1994, we have always had an absolute focus on the importance of employing talented individuals and empowering them to make a real difference to the company, whilst building successful and fulfilling careers at the same time.
The entrepreneurial atmosphere is one of the biggest reasons people love to work for Howden
We have a noticeably flat hierarchy for a global organisation of such size and scope. It comes from the way the group has grown over the last 25 years, with mergers with like-minded companies done in a spirit of collaborative independence.
Such an atmosphere attracts the brightest talent in the market.
