Lockton has named Brian Horwell as a producer in its financial institutions team.
In his new role, Horwell will focus on key areas such as professional liability and liability insurance for directors and officers in a team that will mainly serve banks, asset managers, wealth managers, corporate service providers and advisors.
Horwell brings over 30 years’ industry experience and joins Lockton from Willis Towers Watson, where he most recently served as head of its wealth and asset management team.
Before this he worked at Miller Insurance Brokers as co-head of professional risks where he managed a £15mn brokerage of 70 staff and built one of the largest hedge fund teams in the London market, after which the company was acquired by Willis.
Commenting on the appointment, Allison Hollern, partner of global professional and financial risks at Lockton said: “Brian’s experience and unparalleled client commitment will help drive our business forward in the competitive and growing financial institutions market.
“His advice and energy are highly valued by his clients, who look to Brian for competitive and creative insurance solutions. We continue to build a strong team of experienced brokers that can offer the financial services sector a different style of broking, building our clients’ trust and helping them make the right decisions to protect their business.”
Horwell added: “I want to work for a brokerage that puts the clients at the centre of its proposition. Lockton is built upon that promise and I look forward to working with my financial lines team to deliver the excellent level of client service and counsel Lockton has become known for.”
