Charles Taylor History
Charles Taylor & Co was founded around 1840 in the north-east of England and its early activity was as a coal merchant.
In 1884, the Standard Steamship Owners' Protection and Indemnity Association Ltd was founded and engaged Charles Taylor as its manager.
Management of the Standard Club continued as Charles Taylor's principal activity until the 1960s, when we began to develop other mutuals. Over the next few decades, new mutuals included SCALA for Canadian shipowners and SIGNAL for US stevedore employers.
In 2020 Charles Taylor was acquired by an investment company managed and controlled by Lovell Minnick Partners LLC (‘Lovell Minnick’). Lovell Minnick is a US Private Equity firm that invests in the global financial services industry, including related technology and business services companies, with a focus on helping to build long term value for clients, employees and shareholders.
