JLT Specialty, the specialist insurance arm of Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group plc, was unveiled today as an Official Partner of The Jockey Club and the Official Insurance Broker of its racecourse arm, Jockey Club Racecourses (JCR).
The Jockey Club is the largest commercial group in British horseracing and one of the UK’s leading leisure companies, welcoming around four million people a year to events at its venues nationwide. Governed by Royal Charter, it reinvests all profits back into Britain’s second-biggest spectator sport.
This new three-year agreement builds on JLT’s racing sponsorships with JCR, at The Cheltenham Festival and the Randox Health Grand National at Aintree, and beyond at Ascot, Newbury and York racecourses.
JLT is already JCR’s specialist insurance broker, providing a range of specialist risk management and insurance services. As part of this new agreement, JLT will receive digital, branding and content rights at all 15 of The Jockey Club’s racecourses, as well as access to race tickets and hospitality for key clients and staff across JLT’s UK regional offices.
Jonathan Palmer-Brown, Senior Executive for JLT Group, said:
“JLT is delighted to become an Official Partner of The Jockey Club, building on our long association with the sport of horseracing. We understand the specialist insurance needs of the sport better than anyone, and this new partnership allows us to extend our expertise even further.”
Paul Fisher, Chief Executive of Jockey Club Racecourses, said:
“I’m very pleased to expand our relationship with JLT by them becoming an Official Partner. They provide us with excellent specialist insurance and risk management support, and are a valued sponsor with us at Aintree and Cheltenham, so this is a great example of a mutually-beneficial relationship going from strength-to-strength.”
JLT joins Bentley, Close Brothers, Diageo, European Breeders Fund, Randox Health and National Express as Official Partners of The Jockey Club.
