History

With over 230 years’ joint experience, Hart Insurance Brokers’ team have a wealth of knowledge and market expertise, and are well respected throughout the industry.

Established in 1965 by Eddie Hart, Hart Insurance Brokers started life in an office above Argyll Arcade in Glasgow aspiring to provide solutions for business, personal and financial services clients. Eddie built the firm on the cornerstones of professionalism, efficiency, expertise and personal service – a philosophy preserved to this day.

With a growing client base over the next 27 years and office moves in Glasgow to cope with increasing staff numbers during that time, a new larger home was found further down the river in Clydebank in 1992. By this time, Eddie’s sons, Alistair and Keith were now leading the way as partners, with the firm going from strength to strength.

Since its formation, the firm has undergone many periods of regulatory change, but has always retained its independent status in terms of ownership and how the firm operates within the market.

In 2007, Hart Insurance Brokers were invited to join Willis Towers Watson Networks, which gives them access to an extended range of leading global insurers, preferential rates and broader policy wordings. This has enabled us to offer the kind of benefits usually associated with a much larger brokerage but at the same time retaining its independent status and providing customers with the highest levels of personal service.

After celebrating fifty rewarding years of business in 2015, a further move was afoot, to the shore of the Firth of Clyde in Helensburgh. The spectacular new home within the former Clydesdale Bank building was transformed into an office fit for the digital age but also with a keen nod to the traditional features of the 19th century building. Keith retired as a partner in September 2018 and continues to act as a consultant to the business. 

With an abundance of experience across the whole team, Hart Insurance Brokers have continued to deliver outstanding service to their diverse and trusted client base, remaining independent and faithful to the core values set out from its inception.

Authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) for investment business and general insurance, we control our business and conduct our client relationships to the highest ethical standards, and at all times aim to provide a dynamic, professional service through a personal approach.
