Lloyd’s strengthens Latin America and Caribbean business

10 June 2024 — Andrei VICTOR
Lloyd’s announced the opening of a new office in Miami from 1 September 2024 to strengthen its Latin America and Caribbean business and continue to support the market’s sustainable and profitable growth in the Americas. Latin America and Caribbean is an important and fast-growing area for Lloyd's, accounting for 4.6% of gross written premium (USD 2.7 billion) in 2023.

“The new office will enable Lloyd’s to realign its resources to centrally support brokers, coverholders and managing agents throughout Spanish-speaking Latin America and the Caribbean, while creating another hub in the Americas to service overall Americas business”.

Concentrating Latin America and Caribbean market development activity from Miami will align Lloyd’s operations in the Americas across four offices in New York, Miami, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and Toronto; broadening the support and expertise Lloyd’s offers to its stakeholders and market participants, while supporting the market's ambitions in the region.

The Miami office will also support market development across the US, where the excess and surplus lines (E&S) sector continues to grow and there are opportunities to expand the Lloyd’s Academy (industry-leading commercial education platform for risk professionals), and Lloyd’s Lab innovation hub (with award-winning InsurTech accelerator programme), as well as support captive syndicates, multinational business, and new capital.
