Principal Strategic Partner – Lloyd’s Australia
Lloyd’s is the world’s leading specialist insurance market, conducting business in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. It has been operating via intermediaries for more than 300 years, underwriting Australian risks since the 1890s, and it was the only overseas insurer to be licensed under the Insurance Act of 1973.
The Australian market is the third largest source of revenue for Lloyd’s globally. Premiums generated by Australian policyholders in 2012 amounted to about A$2 billion, 72% of which was direct insurance and 28% reinsurance. More than $840 million of that amount was written by Australian agencies (coverholders).
In 2009, Lloyd’s identified agencies as a key global distribution tool, with their unique ability to combine local people, local brands and local knowledge with Lloyd’s expertise. As a result, Lloyd’s has seen the number of local agencies and service companies grow to more than 90 in Australia and 2,500 worldwide.
Lloyd’s now underwrites Australia’s best known and largest brands and is known worldwide as a market for commercial risks for property and casualty classes of business.
