Navigating the marketplace
Established in a coffee house in the 17th Century, the Lloyd’s market has offices around the world, where companies arrange specialist insurance for customers with complicated or unusual risks. The market houses syndicates with an unrivalled concentration of expertise, which provide the capital for underwriters to accept risk. Most of the business written at Lloyd’s is still conducted face-to-face in the world famous Underwriting Room at our London Lime Street headquarters.
