  • Insurance

    Obtaining cover

    Lloyd's is not a single insurance company; it is a market place where insurance and reinsurance risks are underwritten by syndicates of underwriting members. Subject to certain exceptions, only Lloyd's brokers can arrange insurance cover directly with Lloyd's underwriters, although other firms known as coverholders may be authorised to enter into contracts of insurance on behalf of Lloyd's underwriters.

    If you are interested in obtaining insurance cover at Lloyd's, in the first instance you should contact a suitable broker or insurance intermediary. The broker or insurance intermediary will advise you further on securing your insurance policy in accordance with local insurance legislation.

    UK residents may use the British Insurance Brokers Association website to locate a local/suitable broker or telephone the Consumer Helpline on 0901 814 0015.

    Alternatively you can forward any queries to enquiries@biba.org.uk.

    US residents should contact an insurance agent or broker licensed to conduct business in the relevant state. Details can be found via www.napslo.net/.
