JLT is an international group of Risk Specialists
and Employee Benefits Consultants and one of
the largest companies of its type in the world.
We offer a distinctive choice to our clients and
partners through our combination of independence,
scale and specialism.
As an independent business, we are able to operate
with autonomy and flexibility. We have the scale to
provide solutions to the complex demands of the
world’s leading companies and to deliver global
servicing whilst recognising that the needs of each
of our clients are unique. By developing highly
specialised services, we provide our clients
with a depth of expertise and experience.
The value we create is driven through the personal
determination of our 5,500 highly motivated and

This brochure is intended to give you a flavour of
what makes us positively different. To articulate this
in a compelling and coherent way we need to protect
against regurgitating so much of the repetition you
may have become familiar with from reading other
brochures of this sort.
Change in our industry shows no sign of slowing
down, all business models are continually
undergoing fundamental review, and a number
of broking houses appear
to be suffering from an identity crisis as they struggle
to project themselves in any kind of persuasive way.
At JLT we are very clear about the characteristics
that enable us to add value and make a difference.

We are happy to recognise, even in this world
of converging markets and the multi-faceted
services that everyone is keen to promote, that
consummate results-orientated transactional
skills are essential in delivering effective risk
transfer. We are expert deal-makers. We are
expert market makers. We don’t leave anything
on the table. When in the market we promote
our client’s interests and not our own.

We are not trying to be all things to all people. Market-leading
expertise in specialist fields is what helps set us apart and
provides you with commercial advantage.
Intelligent, innovative and effective solutions can only be
delivered by quality people. We value the individual and the role
they play. People continue to make the difference and people
are the only true investment we can make in our effort to deliver
superior value. People are what will always set us apart and our
people are the principal reason our clients do business with us.
By creating the right environment we allow individuals to work
together as a cohesive and focused team that promotes
personal accountability and responsibility for the benefit of all

We take time to listen and engage with clients, markets and
colleagues so that we can understand aims and objectives, put
strategies in place and successfully deliver them.
Corporate brochures are rarely short of hyperbole, and
because of that, valuable messages are often lost.
From the minute you contact Jardine Lloyd Thompson you
should begin to get a sense of the values that motivate us. The
objective facts speak for themselves but it is only by beginning
to engage with us that you can start to appreciate those critical
subjective elements that go towards the building of a
successful strategic partnership.
It is because of this, that above all else, we would like to talk
with you and allow you to find out for yourself how we look
‘beyond the obvious’.

The delivery of our distinctive risk consulting and risk transfer
services owes much to the way our teams are built.
We impose no rigid formulas. To give you commercial flexibility
your team is likely to bring together specialist industry
knowledge, specific insurance classes and risk consulting
criteria (see chart opposite).
The breaking down of hierarchical internal boundaries
paradoxically also calls for new disciplines. We depend heavily
on first-class global communications centred on the hub of our
City of London headquarters. It provides the openness and
transparency that are so highly valued by all our customers.
Additional support comes from our Global Support team which
manages international programmes: coordinating local service,
legal compliance and policy administration.
Our claims people are an integral and critical part of the
picture, too. The 60-strong operation works close to the
market, alongside our client-facing broking teams in London.
Through this joined-up approach they have established a
world-class record for getting results and resolving
long-running, complex claims.
Our clients are at the centre of everything we do: the service
we provide, the structures we create, the teams we build. This
integrated style is the hallmark of Jardine Lloyd Thompson. It is
the only effective response to the complexities of our clients’
risk transfer needs.
