Lloyd’s Underwriters have provided insurance coverage in Canada since before Confederation. Lloyd’s established its first representative office (known as Lloyd’s Attorney in Fact) in Montreal in 1932.
In the 17th century, London’s importance as a trade centre led to an increasing demand for ship and cargo insurance. Edward Lloyd’s coffee house became recognized as the place for obtaining marine insurance and this is where the Lloyd’s that we know today began. From those beginnings in a coffee house in 1688, Lloyd’s has been a pioneer in insurance and has grown over 325 years to become the world’s leading market for specialist insurance.
Lloyd’s Underwriters are amongs the largest providers of commercial insurance and reinsurance coverage in Canada, insuring businesses large and small. Lloyd’s has built its success in Canada on its appetite for large and specialty risks and the flexibility it brings to its underwriting approach.Visit Lloyd’s Underwriters (Canada)
