Howden UK & Ireland has launched a new marine insurance practice, operating under three trading styles – Haven Knox-Johnston, Haven Knox-Johnston Specialist and Haven Knox-Johnston Commercial.
The new structure brings together the existing Howden Group marine businesses: Haven Knox-Johnston, A-Plan Marine, Howden Fastnet, Euromarine Insurance Services, plus Howden’s most recent marine acquisition, Curtis Marine.
“Our new marine practice allows us to make full use of the combined expertise and experience across Howden for the benefit of our clients,” said Steve Hook, head of UK Marine Practice. “Our goal is to recognise and meet the needs of clients head-on by placing their requirements at the very centre of our thinking. We want to deliver choice, be accessible, give expert advice and deliver real value for money at a time when rising costs are challenging and personal service is at a premium.
The new marine practice has more than 70 insurance specialists across six offices and provides a full spectrum of insurance solutions to the marine industry, UK boat owners and blue ocean cruisers.
