Welcome to Lloyd's in France

Serving the business and entrepreneurs that drive the French economy

Our story in France

Supporting the French industry for more than 70 years.

France is one of Lloyd’s largest markets in continental Europe. Our customers are the businesses and entrepreneurs who drive and serve the French 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 French risks including accident and health, construction, cyber threats, energy, event cancellation, political risks, professional liability, property catastrophe, real estate, transport, and weather protection.

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 French businesses the confidence to move forward in the face of uncertainty.

Lloyd’s Europe

Lloyd’s requires all insurance risks located in the EEA to be written by Lloyd’s Insurance Company S.A. (“Lloyd’s Europe”) and not Lloyd’s underwriters.

Lloyd’s Europe is authorised and regulated by the National Bank of Belgium, and is fully Solvency II compliant, Lloyd’s Europe has passported into all EEA Member States for non-life insurance and is authorised to write non-life risks from Monaco and the UK.

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.

In France, Lloyd’s proudly supports the work of local charities. For instance, in 2017, Lloyd’s France supported disadvantaged and disabled children through sports and job training.

The Lloyd’s market champions diversity and is leading the field in encouraging open, inclusive cultures across our industry. In 2016 Lloyd’s brought to Paris for the first time, the Dive in Festival, a festival celebrating diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
