ABIR welcomes Lockton Re as new member 

Hamilton, Bermuda (September 9, 2021) — The Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers (ABIR) is pleased to welcome Lockton Re, the reinsurance arm of the world’s largest independent insurance broker, as a new member. 

Lockton Re has joined ABIR’s Broker Advisory Cabinet, a body that allows for collaborative efforts among Bermuda’s leading re/insurers and brokers to sustain the island’s successful international re/insurance market.

A privately held independent insurance broker with an entrepreneurial culture, Lockton Re launched a new office in Bermuda in June this year, led by Jonathan (Jonty) Davies, its CEO. 

With the addition of Lockton Re, ABIR’s membership climbs to the highest number in the organization’s 28-year history.

Marc Grandisson, Chairman of ABIR and CEO of Arch Capital Group Ltd., said: “The Bermuda re/insurance market welcomes expansion of the broker community and its contribution to our continuing growth. I am pleased to welcome Lockton Re to ABIR.”

Tim Gardner, Global CEO of Lockton Re, said: “Lockton Re is delighted to be joining ABIR and becoming part of this important business community on the island.

“Bermuda is both a key reinsurance hub and an important focus for the global insurance world. Our Bermuda platform is an essential evolution in our strategy, building capability to service both clients in Bermuda as well as supporting our global client offering with local expertise.

“We look forward to working with ABIR and its members as we both grow and support the global profile of Bermuda and re/insurance. I know our excellent team on the island, led by Jonathan Davies, our CEO there, as well as myself and the global Lockton Re team, are really looking forward to this new working partnership.”

Lockton Re joins fellow global brokerages Marsh McLennan/Guy Carpenter and Willis Towers Watson on ABIR’s 2021 Broker Advisory Cabinet.

John Huff, President and CEO of ABIR, said: “With emerging climate, mortgage, terrorism, and cyber risks high on the agenda of business and government leaders around the world, the value of ABIR’s member companies to the global economy has never been greater.

“We are pleased to welcome Lockton Re to our growing membership, as we represent the leading companies in Bermuda’s international re/insurance market in our advocacy, public policy and education work.”
