Our story in the Middle East

Supporting The Middle East insurance industry for nearly six decades.

Expert underwriters at Lloyd’s, provide their Middle East customers with innovative insurance solutions backed by financial security and strong international ratings that Lloyd’s has always been known for.

After a re-balancing of the oil price markets, many governments throughout the region are accelerating technology, innovation and investing in education to help diversify their economies. With this diversification strategy comes increased insurance opportunities.

While marine and property insurance remain a traditional insurance product for the Middle East market, specialist lines including renewable and nuclear energy, political violence and terrorism along with trade credit are increasingly growing in demand.

By offering solutions to protect public and private assets, and by sharing our risk intelligence, Lloyd’s will continue to support the regional insurance market, build local resilience and help support a developing risk culture throughout the Middle East.

The depth of expertise and breadth of products sets the Lloyd’s market apart. Customers have access to the combined scale, expertise and capacity of an entire market, not just a single insurance company.

As our world is reshaped by economic, environmental, geopolitical and technological shifts, the breadth, depth and responsiveness of the Lloyd’s market gives Middle East businesses the confidence to move forward in the face of uncertainty.
