Howden goes for further regional expansion in Bristol


London-based Howden is opening a new office in Bristol as it seeks to increase its regional presence in the UK.

The retail broking arm of Hyperion Insurance Group already has 500 employees across 13 offices in the UK.

These include: Birmingham, Glasgow, Overbury, Richmond and Wakefield.

However, it noted that the Bristol office will be one of its “largest regional operations”, adding that the business would initially target professions, SME and corporate clients.
