Our HistoryJardine Insurance Brokers was formed by Jardine Matheson many years ago and subsequently became a listed company in which Jardine Matheson retained a majority interest.
JLT was created in 1997 when Jardine Insurance Brokers plc merged with Lloyd Thompson Group plc.
As a consequence of that transaction, Jardine Matheson retained a shareholding of 30% in the merged business. In 2011 Jardine Matheson increased its shareholding in JLT from 30% to 40%.
Jardine Matheson has been a long-term shareholder and supporter of JLT and has played a important part in the success of JLT particularly in Asia where its reputation and local knowledge are of great value.
