Lockton Overview

Although Lockton is the world’s largest privately-held, independent insurance broker, clients typically describe us as team members who care about their business. Energy, innovation, and deep expertise fuel our efforts to solve problems and achieve real results. 

At Lockton, we are passionate about serving our clients, developing our Associates, and giving back to our communities. We harness all of our global resources to do one thing: help you make your business better. We achieve this by improving your bottom line, managing your capital, attracting and retaining talent, and by protecting your people, property and reputation. 

Lockton's Philosophies speak to our values and how we operate.

You can always count on Lockton to take your success personally.”

Our People

Clients benefit from our entrepreneurial culture, which attracts the most talented professionals in the industry. At Lockton, they have the freedom to focus on what they do best:  help clients solve business problems. Peerless in our approach, advice, innovation and impact, we offer our clients unparalleled access to experts around the globe.  

Our History

When Jack Lockton founded Lockton more than 50 years ago, his high-performance attitude attracted clients and talented insurance professionals.

Since 1966, we have grown from a one-person operation to a global team, but our entrepreneurial spirit is the same as ever. Lockton's fierce commitment to private ownership means that each Associate has a single-minded focus on delivering results for clients. You can see stories about how Lockton grew from a small Kansas City broker to a global powerhouse on our Lockton Stories page. 

Performance Record

Our 10% organic growth rate in fiscal 2016 and our 96% client loyalty are the result of a singular focus on our clients, rather than quarterly results. That focus also helped Lockton earn J.D. Power ranking as the highest performing broker in its 2016 Large Commercial Insurance study.
