The Lloyd’s Development Group (LDG) is a not-for-profit group working to provide targeted education and networking for brokers, underwriters and claims professionals in the Australian insurance market. The group is based in Sydney and is open to anyone who works at an underwriting agency, insurance company, syndicate service company, broking firm, third-party claims advisor, loss adjustors and Lloyd’s Australia.
Modelled off the success of the various Lloyd’s and London Market U35s Groups, we aim to run original and informative seminars and educational trips to provide professional development opportunities.
We rely on volunteers, donations and sponsorship to run our events. Membership is free as are our educational seminars wherever possible to ensure accessibility to our events to members.
The Lloyd’s Development Group is grateful and proud to have had the support from Lloyd’s Australia since our founding in July 2016.
“For many years the various Lloyd’s U35’s groups in the UK have been at the forefront of educating young insurance professionals through lectures, educational visits and social events. The Lloyd’s Development Group continues that legacy at a local level here in Australia, and Lloyd’s is delighted to be able to support and encourage the LDG in their goal of developing the knowledge and skills of Australia’s next insurance generation.”
Chris Mackinnon, Lloyd’s General Representative in Australia
“In a very short period of time, LDG have established themselves as committed ambassadors of education and networking for early career insurance professionals in Australia. Wotton + Kearney are delighted to support the work of LDG to provide ongoing professional development opportunities for the industry.”
