Howe Robinson Partners, domiciled in Singapore, is one of the largest privately owned shipbroking houses in the world, with over 330 employees including more than 200 brokers across a global network of offices.
The Howe Robinson Group of companies can trace its origins to the foundation of Howe Robinson and Co Ltd in the City of London in 1883. We provide comprehensive shipbroking services to our global client base in the tanker, containership, dry bulk, LNG and LPG markets. Our brokers are active in newbuilding contracting, sale and purchase, demolition and charter, as well as in providing valuation and market research services.
The company has grown organically and through a number of acquisitions including the businesses of Lambert Bros, Killick Martin, Erlebach Shipbrokers, R. B. Hunt and Partners, Angus Graham and Partners and Shyvers Savoy Shipping Ltd.
In April 2015, the Howe Robinson businesses merged with ICAP Shipping, incorporating the businesses of Capital Shipbrokers, Island Shipbrokers and J E Hyde to form Howe Robinson Partners. In 2019 we acquired BBT, a New York based dry cargo ship broking business.
Howe Robinson Partners is wholly owned by its employees, over half of whom are shareholders.
