Lockton appoints former Willis exec to financial institutions team

Broker Lockton has expanded its financial institutions team with the appointment of Brian Horwell as a producer.

Horwell was previously co-head of professional risks at Miller Insurance Brokers, where he's said to have managed a £15m brokerage of 70 staff and built a hedge fund insurance teams in the London market, before the company was acquired by Willis Towers Watson (WTW). Horwell became the head of the wealth and asset management team at WTW before joining Lockton.

Horwell will focus on key areas such as professional liability and liability insurance for directors and officers. His team will predominantly serve banks, asset managers, wealth managers, corporate service providers and advisors.

Allison Hollern, partner of global professional and financial risks, 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 commented: “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.”
