Howden Expands International Health Insurance Business with Acquisition of iPMI Broker GLOBASSURE

Howden, the largest insurance and reinsurance broker in Greece, continues to dynamically grow its international health insurance business with the recent acquisition of GLOBASSURE.

Led by Mr. Filis Athinaios, the GLOBASSURE team has more than 20 years of experience and expertise in international health & travel programs, while the family tradition of the company's shareholders in the insurance market exceeds 100 years.

Writing on LinkedIn, Filis Athinaios commented, “Reflecting on this incredible journey, I am filled with pride and a deep sense of accomplishment as I share our company’s announcement of becoming part of the esteemed Howden Group.”

“Twenty years ago, we embarked on a bold mission to redefine insurance intermediation by focusing on international private medical insurance (iPMI) and global medical plans. Through dedication, innovation, and an unwavering commitment to our clients, we’ve grown and evolved, reaching this remarkable milestone.”

“Joining the Howden family is not just a testament to our hard work, but also a recognition of our team’s relentless pursuit of excellence. It’s a new chapter that promises even greater achievements and opportunities.“

Summarising Filis Athinaios said, “Thank you to everyone who has been part of this journey: our insurance partners, our sales agents & brokers, our incredible team, and of course our clients.”

In 2003, Howden opened their first office in Greece. Since then, Howden Hellas has grown into the leading independent broker in Greece, with more than 90 in-house experts in the Athens, Thessaloniki, Ioannina and Crete offices.
