Roland Horton

After 30 years working as a Lloyd’s Insurance Broker Roland decided that the market needed a new type of Insurer. An Insurer that didn’t just talk about innovation because it sounded good, or it made the Corporate Image look ‘cutting edge’ but an Insurer where Innovation was the lifeblood, where experience was put to use in serving the Client and the Broker. So together with his Business Partner, William Harris, he founded Hartwell Insurance.

Roland wanted to create an Insurer that takes time to think, creates new solutions and offers Brokers and Clients a bespoke solution not just a routine quote. He didn’t want a Company full of Compliance Officers desperately trying to frustrate business ideas but one where the strategy is run by experienced Insurance professionals who bring unique solutions to every piece of business that is Underwritten. He wanted to create an Insurer that was nimble, practical and sensible, a Company for the future not just a company of “box tickers”. Hartwell Insurance is that Company.

When Roland isn’t fighting the good fight against red tape and Industry inertia, he can be found in his garden tending his flowers or out riding his horses both of which activities keep him just this side of sanity… Just!
