What We Do

Jardine Lloyd Thompson Capital Markets Inc. is an affiliate of JLT Re. We stay on top of industry trends to provide educated solutions for entities looking to maximise capital while ensuring good return.

Capital Raising

We provide expertise to insurance related entities and management buy-outs looking to access new capital. Our wide range of international capital sources include:

  • Private equity and venture capital
  • Trade investors and specialist insurance investors
  • Capital from reinsurance providers: quota share and reinsurance gearing arrangements
  • Lloyd’s names and private investors
  • Specialist debt instruments and debt finance

Mergers & Acquisitions

We offer extensive corporate finance advice, particularly where deep expertise of the insurance dynamic is required. Our services in this area include:

  • Identifying and executing acquisitions to enhance strategic growth and development
  • Disposal of business units, insurance and reinsurance companies or underwriting agencies
  • Management of buy-outs, joint ventures and other strategic alliances
  • Solutions for businesses in runoff

The team has a diverse background across the insurance industry with significant experience in the Florida insurance market. Over their individual careers, the team has worked on three start-ups and numerous acquisitions in Florida.

Weather Solutions

While many companies say that weather is a significant risk to their business (check their 10-K filings) few actually act to mitigate that risk. Given that non-catastrophic weather can heavily impact a business (i.e. fewer coat sales during a warm winter), clients need bespoke solutions based on their specific business. Our team can structure products that:

  • Provide protection over a variety of landscapes
  • Consider multiple triggers and weather events
  • Are tailored to a client's precise region or trigger need

These products allow companies to smooth revenue and provide consistent results during rapidly changing weather conditions.

Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS)

ILS are an important risk financing tool, creating capital for insurers, reinsurers, and corporations. JLT Re is focused on structuring solutions that provide optimal capital advantages for cedants while also ensuring fair returns and transparency for investors. We are licensed to trade ILWs and offer ILS structures if the clients and markets prefer to trade risk transfer solutions in this form. Our services include:

  • In-depth understanding of the insurance risks market
  • Sophisticated analytics
  • Origination and structuring
  • Distribution and trading of catastrophe bonds
  • Trade ILWs and offer ILS structures

Today, we are developing new ILS products related to various catastrophe risks as well as non-catastrophe weather solutions.

Privacy Policy and Disclosures


Jardine Lloyd Thompson Capital Markets Inc. ("JLTCM") maintains a business continuity plan, including a redundant data center and alternate processing facility, to address interruptions to our normal course of business. These plans are reviewed annually and updated as necessary.

Our plan outlines the actions that JLTCM will take in the event of a building, city-wide or regional incident, including relocating technology, operational and registered personnel to an alternate facility located in the closest of our unaffected office locations.

Our recovery time objective for business resumption, including those involving a relocation of personnel or technology, is twelve (12) hours. This recovery objective may be negatively affected by the unavailability of external recourses and circumstances beyond our control.

In the event that the contingency plan is invoked, telephone numbers and contact information remain the same as in normal business circumstances. Should events be such that primary and secondary telephone redirects fail, alternate contact information will be posted on our website.

JLTCM maintains relationships with banks and other broker-dealers. In the event that JLTCM experiences a significant business interruption and cannot be contacted, we will work with our banks and counterparties directly to make alternative arrangements to complete transactions as soon as possible.
