Howden Ventures

A new platform to fast-track insurance innovation

Howden Ventures launched in October 2023 to create an investment and risk incubator that will fast-track insurance product development. 

The initiative draws expertise and resources from specialist innovation teams across the global insurance market. It includes a world-first delegated underwriting authority, backed by leading Lloyd’s underwriters, that provides £500m of syndicated underwriting capacity to support the development of new insurance solutions. 

Howden Ventures will focus on bringing solutions to new emerging risks in a fast-paced, interconnected world – driven by a changing climate, disruptive technology, macro-economic uncertainty, shifting demographics and geopolitical pressures.

Innovation is all about working together and, for the first time, Howden Ventures will assemble the most innovative thinkers in the insurance ecosystem to help solve some of the world’s most critical risks.
