Members’ Agent’s Annual Fees

No profit commission is charged by Alpha to any member.

Our annual fee is £4,850 plus 0.5% of a member’s overall premium limit for the year (OPL) allocated by us, subject to a maximum fee of £35,000 for members underwriting up to £10 million.  For members writing in excess of £10 million, a fee of £4,850 plus 0.5% of a member’s OPL allocated by us will apply with no maximum, but this fee may be negotiable.

Members who also underwrite through another members’ agent will be charged a co-ordinating agent’s fee of 0.30% of the OPL allocated by the other agent.

A discount is offered to members employed in the Lloyd’s market and to groups of members (either through common ownership, family or other groups) if they appoint a single spokesperson for the group but a discounted group fee cannot be used in conjunction with a discount for working members.

A winding-up fee equivalent to one year’s annual fee is payable following resignation.

We do not charge any auction transaction fees.

New member and participant fees

Fees are charged to set up a new LLP or Nameco, to add participants to an existing LLP or Nameco and to convert to a Nameco or LLP.

  • We charge a fee of £5,000 to set-up of a new LLP or Nameco underwriting at Lloyd’s for the following year of account which also covers Fidentia’s set-up fee.
  • We charge a fee of £4,000 to members converting their underwriting to a Nameco or LLP for the following year of account which also cover Fidentia’s conversion.  An additional £250 will be charged by Alpha for additional new participants.
  • The addition of a new participant to a vehicle in any one year will be charged at £750 and a further £500 will be charged for each additional participant in that year.

Sale of LLVs

We charge sellers of limited liability vehicles a fee equivalent to the highest annual fee payable to Alpha in respect of the last three years of account. A valuation of the vehicle for sale will be required and will be charged separately by the valuer.


As well as the set-up and conversion charges detailed above, Fidentia charges an annual fee of £2,900 plus VAT for the administration of Namecos and LLPs.


Lloyd’s will charge an application fee to set up an LLV. The level of fee will depend on the complexity of the corporate structure.  The fee will be £5,000 if it is classed by Lloyd’s as a simple structure and £10,000 if classed as a complex structure. We will clarify the cost for you once we have examined your proposed structure. Lloyd’s will apply a 10% discount where an unlimited member converts or an existing member sets up a new LLV.  Lloyd’s will also charge fees where there is a third party funds at Lloyd’s owner, the level depending on the complexity of the structure of the third party.  The Lloyd’s fee to set up of an LLV with non-private capital will be £50,000.

The administrative unit of Lloyd’s that handles members’ affairs is called Market Services. It charges annual fees called ‘Market Services charges’ to both Namecos and LLPs. These fees cover various regulatory, custodial and tax advice charges.  The costs normally total circa £3,600 per year to cover administration of LLV’s, custodianship of FAL assets and tax preparation.

Lloyd’s will charge for the application for approval to make any subsequent changes to the controllers of the Nameco or LLP. This is added to the annual Market Services charge.
