Thomas Robson Miller was a shipowner in the late 19th century.
In 1885, Miller took over the running of the United Kingdom Mutual Steam Ship Protecting Association. The Club had 600,000 tons entered and members paid two old pennies per ton. This club, now named the UKP&I Club, now insures around 175 million tonnes of owned and chartered ships from more than fifty countries across the globe.
Today, the Thomas Miller Group of Companies manages a large percentage of the foremost insurance mutuals in the international transport sector. Thomas Miller also manages insurance services for barristers, patent agents, housing associations and pension schemes.
The services offered by Thomas Miller have been honed for over 125 years and investment management has always been a major component of these services. As a consequence Thomas Miller Investment was formed as a separate Investment Company in 1987.
This unique heritage in the insurance sector has informed the way we manage the assets of all our clients, both inside and outside the Group. As a result, the focus was – and is – on capital preservation.
