    • Submission of our application form and £5,000 registration fee - download the form here
    • Securing letters of support from managing agents

    Before you apply, please contact the Lloyd's Broker Relationship Management team to inform us that you are interested in becoming a registered Lloyd's broker.

The purpose of the meeting is for us to better understand your rationale for applying and provide an opportunity to discuss the process with you.

    If you are established in, or have your main place of business in a country where Lloyd's has a Country Representative, you should first contact the Country Representative to discuss your intention to apply.
