Howden acquires Ross Insurance Group

The acquisition follows Howden’s strategy to increase its specialist expertise and services to UK and international clients.

Howden has announced its acquisition of Ross Insurance Group as it continues to invest in expertise for its UK business.

Ross Insurance Group is a commercial broker servicing corporate and technology clients. It has a particular focus on Financial and Construction risks, and manages complex global programmes for clients across different industry sectors.

This includes financial services, technology, construction, property management and vehicle leasing. 

Howden said the acquisition of Ross Insurance Group is another step in the company’s ongoing strategy to deliver specialist expertise and “exceptional service” to UK and international clients.

This acquisition follows Howden’s announcement in October of its acquisition of Aston Lark to create a full-service broker to increase its scale and reach in the UK. 

Sarah Hughes, head of Financial Lines at Howden, said: “Our relentless focus on expertise and investing in specialist skills is underlined by this highly complementary partnership with Ross Insurance Group, who bring with them significant experience and in-depth industry knowledge.

“They have established an exceptional reputation for listening and understanding client needs and using innovative thinking to achieve tailored solutions. We are addicted to attracting the very best talent to Howden for the benefit of our clients.”

Mark Ross, CEO of Ross Insurance Group, said: “Howden is an excellent fit for our team as we look to take the business to the next level, where we will benefit from its scale, market access, breadth of expertise and investments in technology and digital solutions. We look forward to continuing our journey with the Howden team.”
