Our Story

Lockton is the world's largest privately owned global insurance broker. From small beginnings in Kansas City in 1966 Lockton has become a leading broker worldwide. Our extraordinary year on year growth is the result of our relentless focus on client service - made much easier by not having to serve the needs of shareholders. From the chairman of Lockton down, almost all of our Associates have direct client engagement.

In the UK we have a particular focus on risk and insurance solutions for Professional clients, including Accountants, Surveyors, IFAs, Architects and Lawyers, from our 9 UK offices including London, Bristol, Manchester and Edinburgh.
