Today, Miller is the only privately owned independent broking group of its size based in the UK. Over the 100 years Miller has been in business, it has built up a worldwide reputation for delivering results through unrivalled expertise, sector knowledge and depth of relationships with the major markets - both internationally and in London.
Miller was originally founded on 2 January 1902 by Thomas Miller, when he started an insurance entity called Thos R. Miller & Son (Insurance) to complement his existing partnership of P&I Managers.
In 1974 a holding company was formed as part of a diversification into new areas of non-marine business. This entailed the creation of several separate trading companies in order to meet the needs of clients at the time.
In 1983 Sir Peter Miller, then chairman of the holding company, introduced a unique employee trust ownership structure, which underpins Miller's independence today.
By 1991 the organisation had expanded through the creation of worldwide ventures and trading relationships, and was renamed The Miller Insurance Group.
By 1999 there were eight separate Lloyd's broking companies and these were restructured to create a single trading entity. In addition to being able to provide clients with a more uniform and comprehensive service, the reorganisation facilitated cross-fertilisation of business and shared learning as well as enabling greater operational efficiencies.
In 2002 a new corporate identity was introduced, with the Lloyd's broking arm being renamed Miller Insurance Services.
An employee trust has an interest in the shares of Miller through the ownership of the Miller partnership.
