This international insurance broker and underwriting group was formed in 1994 when chief executive David Howden, 52, led a buyout from Lloyd’s broker SBJ. After its merger with insurance broker RKH last year, it became the world’s largest employee-owned insurance group, operating from 121 offices in 37 countries. It has expanded through acquisitions in Europe, South America and Asia — more than 30 since General Atlantic took a minority stake in 2013. Overseas revenues hit £238.8m in 2015.
