AFL in a Nutshell
AFL Insurance Brokers Ltd (AFL) is an independent Lloyd’s broker with a global focus. We work alongside retail brokers, wholesalers, Managing General Agents and insurers throughout the world aligning your needs with the relevant products and capacity. We are positioned to engage and add value at every stage of the design, build, delivery and performance management of the programmes and risk structures we handle. We pride ourselves in offering a broad, integrated value proposition to all our clients.
Our core values are simple – Creative, Determined and Excellent happily sum up our expectations of ourselves. We focus heavily and take great satisfaction from getting things done that others can’t. We embrace being polished and efficient when dealing with more standard business flow and equally enjoy getting stuck into more difficult placements.
AFL Are Independent Lloyd’s Brokers
AFL is committed to retaining our independence and we ensure that our decisions, advice and product distribution reflect that explicitly. Our independence allows us to guarantee impartiality, to be voluntarily fully transparent and to be authentic, always.
Our Wholesale Practice has been built to assist with the placement of binders, facilities and open market business into Lloyd’s and Global markets. We also specialise in looking after the UK and European interests of your multinational clients through our Corporate Retail division.
“We are totally focussed on excellence in everything we do and are determined to deliver with quality and enthusiasm.”
