Arthur J. Gallagher to acquire JLT group's aerospace operations

5 March 2019 — Andrei Victor
Marsh & McLennan (MMC) and Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT) agree to sell JLT's Aerospace Business to Arthur J. Gallagher. The acquisition, subject to European Commission approval, is scheduled to close this spring in connection with the closing of the JLT purchase by MMC.

The agreement provides the transfer of all assets within JLT's global aerospace retail and wholesale insurance broking division, which includes operations in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and 10 other countries spanning Europe, Latin America and Asia. The agreement also includes the assets of Hayward Aviation, a UK insurance broker that specializes in aviation for high-net worth individuals and smaller airlines.

Approximately 250 employees from JLT's global aerospace division will join Gallagher as part of the agreement. This includes around 100 employees within JLT's London Market operations who will become part of Gallagher's existing aviation division, which most recently added independent aviation insurance and reinsurance broker, Boston Marks, to its growing London-based aviation operations.
