Howden have been our PI brokers for the last two years and we have found them to be excellent. They clearly understand our business and are cognisant of the risks of that business. They are able, therefore, to explain to lead insurers and excess layer insurers how our procedures are effective in reducing risk. This understanding, together with their knowledge and expertise in the market place ensured that in a challenging market we secured the right terms. Howden’s personal approach to their clients both in terms of renewal and dealing with complaints when they arise has been central to building our good relationship.
