About Howden

Howden is a trading name of Howden Insurance Brokers Limited, a leading international insurance group with employee ownership at its heart. Our global broking and underwriting business provides a range of specialist insurance solutions to clients, and are supported by a strong backbone of technology and service expertise.

Howden was appointed in October 2016 by the Public Guardian to administrate the deputy bond scheme which provides financial protection for vulnerable people. The scheme provides suitable surety bonds for the purposes of security to all deputies appointed by the court.

Our innovative online approach is designed to simplify and streamline your experience. You can organise your bond at a time suitable to you and our automated process will email you your bond within 2 hours of receipt of payment. We will also email a copy of the bond to the other deputies you have listed.

The scheme is serviced by Howden Bond team based at our Birmingham office. If you feel that you would like some guidance then please do not hesitate to contact our friendly team using the contact option.

Please note, we are no longer issuing new bonds. Please contact our customer service team if you would like to speak to us about an existing bond.
