Who are Lloyd's of London?

Lloyd's logo

Lloyd’s of London is often misunderstood as an insurance company. 

However, it is actually an organisation that puts syndicates (capital providers) and brokers (Lloyd’s accredited brokers) together for the underwriting of certain risks that brokers bring to them at the ‘box’ within Lloyd’s. Lloyd’s is renown for its ability to ‘spread’ or ‘syndicate’ risk, meaning that specialist or high value risks can be successfully placed among a number of syndicates.

This is particularly common for large corporate organisations, or even insurance companies (reinsurance) seeking indemnity in exchange for a premium. Lloyd’s of London is over 330 years old and wrote approximately £33 Billion (GBP) of premium in 2018, with the USA accounting for 40% of all premium.

 

Being a Lloyd’s Insurance Broker

Lloyd’s of London is home to the world’s largest insurance market – The Lloyd’s London Markets. As a specialist Lloyd’s Broker we have access to all the syndicates apart of this market, offering ‘A’-Rated policies from ‘A’-Rated providers.

We are also able to offer an additional virtual ‘re-insurer’ to our clients, where domestic or local market insurers have refused cover or are unable to underwrite the risk 100%. We can either underwrite the risk on a 100% primary basis, re-insured or co-insured/subscription based by creating tailored facilities for your insurance requirements.
