Welcome to Lloyd's in Portugal

Our story in Portugal

Supporting Portuguese insurance industry for more than 300 years.

Lloyd’s has been authorized in Portugal to transact business on a freedom of services basis since 1993 for all classes of business. In April 2009, Lloyd’s received authorization to write insurance business in Portugal on a freedom of establishment basis for all classes except motor liability and life business.

With a nationwide coverholder model and strong support from our broker distribution network, Lloyd’s underwriters are amongst the largest commercial insurers and reinsurers in Portugal. Our customers are the businesses and entrepreneurs who drive and serve the Portuguese 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 Portuguese risks including damages, civil liability, transportation, aviation and other specialized 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 Portuguese businesses the confidence to move forward in the face of uncertainty.
