Welcome to Lloyd's in Japan

Our story in Japan

Lloyd’s appointed its first agent in Japan in 1868 and from the early 1900s was the first overseas reinsurer to provide support for Japan’s growing insurance market. Lloyd’s is still a significant provider of reinsurance today but now also provides specialist commercial insurance solutions to the market through its local office, Lloyd’s Japan, which opened in 1997. Our customers are the businesses and entrepreneurs who drive and serve the Japanese economy and they come to Lloyd’s to access the scale, diversity and financial strength of our specialist insurance and reinsurance market.

Lloyd’s provides tailored insurance and reinsurance solutions for a variety of property, casualty, liability and marine classes. In addition, a range of specialist covers is offered, including but not limited to specie, terrorism, political risks & trade credit, contingency and warranty & indemnity.

Our work in the community

Lloyd’s is committed to improving lives and building resilience in the local community. Through the Lloyd’s Together programme we support local communities with projects that focus on education and employability, environment and sustainability, social welfare and health and disaster preparedness and relief.

The Lloyd’s market champions diversity and is leading the field in encouraging open, inclusive cultures across our industry. In 2018, Lloyd’s brought to Tokyo for the first time, the Dive in Festival, a festival celebrating diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
