Our associate member, JLT Specialty [JLT], have won Broker of the Year at the British Claims Awards 2018.

The win demonstrates that JLT is an insurance broker who understands the value of its claims professionals for clients, and the importance of them being embedded in the business and involved from the outset of the client relationship. Carey Lynn, Senior Partner at JLT, commented, “This is a wonderful accolade for our team, and everyone at JLT who has, and continues to, support us – I could not be prouder of the team!”

The ceremony was attended by JLT’s clients who watched on as judges at the British Claims Awards made their final decision. This decision was based on evidence that demonstrated which company had the best customer-focused claims service and investment in their own people.

One of the judges – James Dalton, Director of General Insurance Policy at ABI, said, “This was a well-rounded submission that had clearly thought about how the entry would demonstrate how the judging criteria would be met. It demonstrated an on-going investment in their people and professional qualifications. And it was from a firm that clearly put customers at the heart of their work and had great testimonials from their clients.”
