The Jockey Club expands relationship with JLT

The Jockey Club has unveiled insurance provider JLT Speciality as an Official Partner.

As part of the deal, JLT Speciality, the specialist insurance arm of Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group, will also serve as the Official Insurance Broker of Jockey Club Racecourses.

The agreement will run for three years. JLT already sponsors races at various events, such as the Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National at Aintree.

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.

“JLT is delighted to become an Official Partner of the Jockey Club, building on our long association with the sport of horseracing,” JLT senior executive Jonathan Palmer-Brown said. “We understand the specialist insurance needs of the sport better than anyone, and this new partnership allows us to extend our expertise even further.”

Jockey Club Racecourses chief executive Paul Fisher added: “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.”
