JLT South Africa

JLT South Africa is a corporate and specialist insurance, reinsurance and employee benefits broker, with offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.


To all Employees current and past as well as all Business Partners.

Jardine Lloyd Thompson (Pty) Limited (JLT South Africa) tenders an apology to all Employees current and past as well as all its Business Partners who may have been under the impression that an Employee Share Trust owned 5% of the shares of JLT South Africa. JLT South Africa records that the Share Trust, although it was established, was never a shareholder in JLT South Africa nor did JLT South Africa intend to give any impression that the Share Trust was a shareholder.

Further, during the period 2015-2017 JLT South Africa unintentionally traded with invalid B-BBEE certificates, which were issued by an accredited verification agency. JLT South Africa acted under the advice of the verification agency, which it now transpires was incorrect. JLT South Africa apologises for this error.

We work directly with clients or in partnership with JLT overseas offices and independent intermediary brokers, seeking to access both our sector expertise and London insurance market knowledge.

Working with you

However, the success of our clients’ businesses does not depend on how they manage risk and insurance alone, which is why we work hard to properly understand the challenges they face. Whether it’s launching new products, regulatory compliance, considering a merger or acquisition, or entering new markets. Through this wider understanding we make sure their insurance and risk management programme is fit for purpose.
