When it comes to growing your business, we use service and process excellence to reduce market capture and deliver superior and sustainable financial outcomes in a world focusing on ESG and Net Zero.

We act as your Trusted Advisor, helping you secure the best protection of your balance sheet, avoiding cashflow of unknowable timings that could affect your credit, profit and shareholder value.

Corporates and financial teams have often followed the path of resistance. Insurance has both been abundant and cheap until Covid-19 struck. Now that interest rates and premiums are increasing significantly, corporates must retain additional risk as costs grow and growth slows.

As your Trusted Advisor, we work with your finance and treasury team (and existing brokers if required) to:

  1. Understand the fundamental financial and revenue drivers of your business.
  2. Identify the risks that threaten your business.
  3. Review the existing insurance program and structure.
  4. Understand the effectiveness of your insurance program to protect your cash flow forecasts and enterprise value.
  5. Review how you use your data to create actionable insights that help you monitor and control risk.
  6. Identify further actionable risk data that will support your insurance program improvements.
  7. Deliver process with an actively managed roadmap for a continually improved insurance program.

David McKibbin

Chief Executive Officer

I have 35 years insurance and reinsurance experience as an energy, mining and industrial underwriter and senior executive, multinational risk manager in the corporate sector and award-winning business owner.  I understand clients need financial certainty. Something the insurance market singularly fails to deliver.  My deep knowledge of risk and insurance-related issues within corporate finance gives me a unique insight into the challenges companies face to reduce their costs and also strengthen their balance sheets in an increasingly hostile trading and financial environment.

Richard Henry

Chief Sales Officer

With considerable achievement owning and running insurance broking operations for 30 years, I drive progressive change in an industry that needs a fundamental overhaul.  My accomplishments are driven by building a highly skilled and motivated team, a solid global valuable network and ensuring our clients receive the best possible service, particularly following claims that are handled fairly and effectively. I founded Lex in 2012 in Malta and have carefully built the expert team and networks into the Group it is today where we, as your Trusted Advisor, are driving change as an industry leader in the ESG and Net Zero insurance world.
