Tysers Insurance Brokers |

Tysers, a leading, independent Lloyd’s broker, is pleased to announce that James Lucas will join the firm as Associate Director as it expands its Political Violence and Terrorism team in response to increased demand from international clients.

James will join from Aon Benfield where he is responsible for developing the Latin America and EMEA Terrorism and Political Violence solutions across Aon’s network. James will bring a wealth of industry expertise and knowledge in these specialist areas which will help to drive growth and promote Tysers’ portfolio.

Based in London, James will join a global team led by Ciara Appleford, when she starts at Tysers, where his broking experience, market expertise and technical ability will help to deepen Tysers’ client relationships both in the London market and internationally.

James’s appointment will be the latest in a series of senior hires as Tysers continues to expand its presence in London and globally. In 2021, Tysers made a number of new hires to further strengthen its marine, construction and casualty offerings.

Jason Collins, Co-Head of Global Broking, Markets and Business Development at Tysers, said: “It’s great to welcome James to the Tysers’ team. His appointment is indicative of our strategic ambition and commitment to meeting the increasing demand for specialist insurance expertise and technical skills across international markets.”

Richard Macfarlane, Managing Director, International Property & Casualty at Tysers, commented: “I am delighted that James is joining our Political Violence and Terrorism team. As a market-leading broker we are continuing to expand our offering in this specialist area to ensure that we continue to provide our clients with the tailored solutions and superior service that Tysers is renowned for.”
