When we formed Protean Risk in 2008, our aim was to combine the knowledge and experience that we had gained working for large, global insurance broking firms with a high level of personal service and attention.  We recognised the importance of this personal approach in helping clients achieve better insurance results.

Businesses are built one client at a time and our focus today is as much on ensuring our existing clients receive the care and attention they deserve as it is on adding new clients. It's by remaining true to our core values of sector specialisation, personal service and problem solving, that many of our valued clients have been with us since we started.

In 2016 we achieved the coveted status of Lloyd's Broker, which entitles us to directly access the Lloyd’s market and transact business in Lloyd’s. This allows us to select from an even wider choice of insurance providers and ensure that we can match our clients’ requirements with the most appropriate insurance provider.

In 2019 Protean Risk was acquired by Aston Lark and in 2022 by Howden, one of the UK’s leading insurance brokers and one that is proudly independent.

This is an exciting new chapter for us as it means we can now offer our clients more through the increased scale and broader range of services that we now have.

Like Protean Risk, Howden share our passion for delivering the very best outcomes for clients and forming enduring relationships with them.

Going forward, our clients will continue to receive a first-class service from the same dedicated and familiar team, but now with more resources behind us to achieve more for clients at renewal and throughout the year.

We remain as committed today as we did when we set out and would welcome the opportunity to discuss with you what that commitment could do for you and your business.
