The UK P&I Club and its partnership with the Brazilian shipping community

This booklet sets out the history of, and some notable events in, the remarkable and long-standing
relationship between the Brazilian shipping community and the UK P&I Club.

The UK Club itself was founded in 1869 by British shipowners with like-minded interests in the provision of insurance for collision and other Protection & Indemnity risks. During the 20th century, the Club broadened its membership base, and developed into a P&I insurer of internationally based shipowners.

The Brazilian shipowning community has played a key role in the successful development of the Club for more than 60 years.
