JLT Australia unveils new sports partnership
Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT) Australia has forged a three-year partnership that will see the broker and risk adviser become the official risk partner of Golf Australia and the ISPS Handa Australian Women’s Open.

The new tie-up will enable JLT to provide Golf Australia with comprehensive insurance cover and risk expertise, protecting regional, country and metropolitan clubs on and off the course. 

“Being the leader in the business of sport risk in Australia, we are thrilled to partner with one of Australia’s top sports,” JLT CEO Leo Demer said. “Golf Australia shares our values of hard work, ingenuity and collaboration, and of course passion to grow the sport at all levels. We will continue our tradition of bringing the game to the broader community and support professionals, to occasional golfers and the next generation.”

Stephen Pitt, Golf Australia CEO, said the long-term partnership with JLT sends a positive message about golf and about female golfers.

“To have such a global brand investing in the game through Golf Australia, and more specifically the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open, is a really positive message on the state of the game in this country,” Pitt said. “We pride ourselves on the work invested into women’s golf through the event and also our female participation program, Swing Fit, and are really encouraged that it continues to attract strong corporate support.”

“The support and change in mentality we are seeing now is breaking down barriers for female golfers,” Stacey Peters said. “It’s going to be a big year and I am looking forward to more golf, more often, for everyone.”

Peters is seven-time winner on the Australian Ladies Professional Golf (ALPG) Tour, two-time winner on the Ladies European Tour, and Golf Australia’s Female Pathway Manager.
