Welcome to Howe Maxted
Howe Maxted Group has been helping clients identify risks and find solutions to minimise the impact on their business and private lives for over 100 years. We are a privately owned, service driven business, having developed and grown over the years to become a leading firm of independent risk consultants, general insurance brokers and financial advisors. We have an established reputation, a long-standing track record with a proven ability to understand fully the unique demands and needs of our clients which in turn ensures best advice is provided in tailoring the insurance cover at competitive premiums. The majority of our clients come from an existing client referral.
Our “Brand” is our service if we have no service we have no brand. Hence our trained and experienced insurance advisers are here to guide you with utmost integrity through the options available to ensure the solution meets you needs. Being focused on the risks that face you we will be completely transparent and honest to ensure the risks are understood and the solution fits your needs, and importantly is suitably explained to you. If you do not understand the solution there is no point in implementing it as there will be no peace of mind which ostensibly is what an insurance policy provides.
We have access to the majority of UK insurance markets including London and Lloyd’s of London which enables us to ensure your insurance solutions are robust, reliable and competitive, a policy after all is only as good as the claim it pays. The breadth of our market coverage has been extended with our membership of the Marsh Ltd Probroker Network giving us access to new markets and importantly policy wordings which provide greater cover than is available to the general market.
We are a service focused business and we require the same high levels of service from the insurers we recommend. We work with them closely to ensure standards of transparency honesty and integrity are maintained and that the policies recommended are both competitive but also where necessary tailored to your exact needs and circumstances to give you a very personal insurance experience on which you can rely throughout the year.
By using the intellectual property and expertise of the Howe Maxted Group an independent insurance broker we provide you with a broader choice of insurance options for your business, family or home and treasured possessions and holidays, giving you an insurance coverage fit for purpose and peace of mind to enjoy your chosen pass time.
We aim to give you a professional painless service from our trained and experienced teams, we do not aim to be the cheapest, we leave cheap to the amateurs, we do aim to find you the right solutions to your risk and insurance needs at competitive premiums. As John Ruskin (1819-1900) once said “There is hardly anything in this world which some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper and the people who consider price alone are this man’s lawful prey, as it is unwise to pay too much as it is to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money that is all. When you pay too little you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the job it was supposed to do”.
