To capitalise on the region’s unprecedented growth and expand its network, the JLT Group’s Specialty division entered the MENA market in 2004 by setting up base at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) thereby creating local presence for the wholesale market in the Middle East. The branch originally comprised three specialists who focused on developing the energy and construction businesses. It has now grown from strength to strength to include 15 specialists. Originally the operation was focused on developing wholesale Energy and Construction business, while this continues to be the case we have expanded our existing capabilities and have invested in a strong marine and aviation capability.

In the Middle East the operation has strong relationships with local, regional and London markets and is a leading force in the Specialty Insurance universe.

Setting foot in MENA’s retail insurance world, JLT Group in 2013 acquired the well established Insure Direct (Brokers) LLC, a limited liability company registered in Dubai and having offices in the UAE and Bahrain. The team at JLT Insure Direct has garnered strong relationships with providers thereby providing clients with unrivalled quality of service. The acquisition has enabled the integration of global expertise with local talent thereby providing a very robust system of working to the advantage of our clients.

JLT is one of the world’s largest providers of insurance, reinsurance and employee benefits related advice, brokerage and associated services. In 2015, the JLT DIFC operation joined hands with JLT ID to become a specialty hub in the region. JLT ID now employs over 100 individuals and is recognised as a market leader with key executives having over 20 years of experience in the Middle East region.
