Our story in Brussels

Lloyd’s Brussels (Lloyd’s Insurance Company S.A), is Lloyd’s first Europe wide operation. It has been set up to ensure Lloyd’s partners across Continental Europe can continue to access the market’s underwriting expertise and financial security.

Established after the 2016 UK referendum, Lloyd’s Brussels has 19 branches throughout Europe, including in the UK, and a Brussels based executive committee. Lloyd’s Brussels is authorised and regulated by the National Bank of Belgium and capitalised according to Solvency II rules. It is licenced to write all non-life risks from the European Economic Area, and it started placing and processing 2019 EEA business in November 2018. The company benefits from the market’s financial strength through the Central Fund and has the same financial ratings as Lloyd’s AM Best (A “excellent”), Standard & Poor’s (A+ “strong”) and Fitch (AA- “very strong”).

Lloyd’s Brussels ensures that our European partners have access to the combined scale, expertise, capacity and claims service of the entire market now through a single insurance company based at the heart of Europe.
