Our solutions – MGA

Using our experience of launching and managing a variety of businesses at Lloyd’s, we provide the same range of expertise and services to MGAs.

We offer you and your capacity partners a full range of business support, including infrastructure, management and regulatory reporting. All you need to do is provide underwriting staff, strong ambition and a sound business plan.

MGAs – who are we looking for?

  • Innovative start-up businesses offering different types of product, distribution, services or operating model but without aligned underwriting capital.
  • Established, profitable MGAs/MGUs looking to take underwriting risk in their own business with the support of a high-quality MGA management solution.
  • Single geography or product line experts that don’t possess the size or infrastructure to set up independently.

How do we support you?

Business Planning and launch

  • We’ll work with you to review and refine your business plan.
  • If the best solution for your MGA is to operate at Lloyd's, we’ll sponsor your Coverholder application and support you through the due diligence and decision stages.
  • We’ll then support you through the implementation of your plan before securing final approval for you to start underwriting.
  • We’ll then support you in “making it happen”; guiding you through the implementation of your plan before securing final approval for you to start underwriting.
