JLT Re completes Environmental Liability Consortium at Lloyd's

10 September 2011

JLT Re is pleased to announce it has completed the first ever Environmental Liability Consortium at Lloyd's. With the leading capacity and expertise of Chubb Syndicate 1882 plus Ace Syndicate 2488 it has been possible to generate limits to underwrite this specialised product for Worldwide exposures. The Consortium has been created to meet the demand for higher levels of environment impairment liability (EIL) coverage and to provide, within the Lloyd’s environment, a unique facility for syndicates and brokers for this class of insurance.

Led by Chubb and Ace the Consortium will provide:

  • Capacity of up to USD 65,000,000 (moving to USD 75,000,000 in 2012) for any one risk in the aggregate, backed by Lloyd’s security
  • Worldwide (ex-USA) cover for environmental exposures for businesses based in territories where Lloyd’s is licensed – targeting in particular emerging markets such as Central Europe, Latin America, South Africa and Asia
  • Access to a ‘one-stop shop’ Lloyd’s facility which can provide broad coverage for environmental risks on an annual basis for fixed site policies and up to three years of cover for contractors’ project business

The Consortium is open for any Lloyd's broker to access and JLT Re have been appointed to administer the Consortium.
