We are market leaders in many of our chosen lines, which include professional indemnity, property, marine, reinsurance, accident and life, and political risks and contingency business.
Beazley plc is incorporated in the UK and listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE Symbol :BEZ).
Since Beazley began business in 1986 in a small office in Fenchurch Street in the City of London, we've grown steadily in many ways. Our principle UK location is in London, at Plantation Place South, from where both our Lloyd's managing agency and the syndicates are run. We also have satellite offices in Birmingham, Ipswich, Leeds and Manchester.
Beazley is a proud participant in the Lloyd's market, the largest and oldest insurance market in the world. Through the Lloyd's broker network and the market's trading licenses, we are able to access a wide range of insurance and reinsurance businesses from around the world.
Many of the lines of business we underwrite, such as marine and energy insurance, political risks insurance, and contingency insurance, were either pioneered or specifically developed as insurance classes at Lloyd's.
