Billy Craig Insurance Brokers Limited (Billy Craig) is a full service insurance brokerage with correspondent relationship with Aon Corporation and strong professional relationships within the local and international insurance markets. We provide corporate clients with comprehensive professional advice, innovative risk placement solutions and can provide risk management services.
Our approach is ‘needs driven’ rather than ‘sales led’, thus in order to deliver innovative solutions that address our clients diverse needs, we strive to achieve and maintain a level of understanding of their business that will enable us to contribute in a meaningful way to their objectives. This is achieved by developing a partnership that involves regular contact. Our strengths are our people, our processes and our commitment to service. We are highly experienced in the handling of commercial risks of all sizes and utilize advanced technology and real time systems for communication.
Billy Craig was first established in 1963 in Montego Bay by the Hon. William “Billy “ Craig, the Custos of St. James, as an Insurance Agency writing business with the entire market both local and overseas. Business expanded steadily through aggressive marketing and personalised service to our customers which included professional claims settlement practices. The Kingston branch was opened in 1983 and in 1988 the company changed status from Agency to Broker. The formation of an Employee Benefits Division in 1997 added Life and Health to the Company’s wide range of general insurance product offering.
In 2009 Billy Craig was very proud to enter into a correspondent relationship to represent AON clients in Jamaica and also as a point of reference to assist Billy Craig with placements in the worldwide insurance market. Based on this relationship Billy Craig has access to AON specialist teams worldwide and access to the power of the world’s largest Insurance Broker to satisfy the demands of our customers’ insurance requirements.
We remain one of the few truly independent brokers not linked in any way to any Insurance Company or Financial Institution. This affords our clientele the advantage of no bias in any way in the manner in which we conduct our business thereby allowing us to be truly professional in our approach to business.
Billy Craig is currently one of the six largest brokers in Jamaica and one of the largest independent brokers in the country. There are over 30 registered brokers in Jamaica. We are by far the largest insurance organization in Western Jamaica. We are licensed as an Insurance Brokerage under the Insurance Act of Jamaica (2001) and fall under the supervision of the Financial Services Commission. We are recognized by Lloyd’s of London and place business in this market on our clients’ behalf. Billy Craig is a member of Jamaica Insurance Brokers Association.
