Our story in Zimbabwe
Supporting Zimbabwe’s insurance industry for over 80 years.
With support from the broker distribution network, Lloyd’s underwriters are able to provide capacity for strategic risks and cover for risks that the local market is unable to accept because of financial constraints and underwriting restrictions imposed by the local reinsurance market. Consequently, some of our clients are the largest commercial insurers and reinsurers in the country who 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 Zimbabwe based risks including Property, Liability, Accident and Health, Aviation, Marine, Political Violence, Cyber and Kidnap and Ransom Risks.
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 Zimbabwe businesses and insurers and reinsurers, the confidence to move forward in the face of uncertainty.
Our work in the community
Lloyd’s is committed to improving lives and building resilience in the local community. Through the Lloyd’s Together program we support local communities with projects that focus on education and employability, environment and sustainability, social welfare and health and disaster preparedness and relief.
In Zimbabwe, Lloyd’s is a member of the local Insurance Institute and participates in sponsorship of annual events such as the IIZ Annual Conference. Lloyd’s also provides opportunities for local market practitioners for learning and networking at the bi-annual Development Programmes held at Lloyd’s in London in Spring and Autumn.
The Lloyd’s market champions diversity and is leading the field in encouraging open, inclusive cultures across our industry.
