Starting with its roots in marine insurance, Lloyds’s has grown over 300 years to become the world’s leading market for specialist insurance. Lloyd’s is home to 46 managing agents and 75 syndicates, which offer an unrivalled concentration of specialist underwriting expertise and talent. Lloyd’s is the world’s best known – but probably least understood – insurance brand. This is because Lloyd’s is not an insurance company but a society of members, both corporate and individual, who underwrite in syndicates on whose behalf professional underwriters accept risk. Supporting capital is provided by investment institutions, specialist investors, international insurance companies and individuals. Lloyd’s brokers bring business to the market. The risks placed with underwriters originate from clients and other brokers and intermediaries all over the world. Together, the syndicates underwriting at Lloyd’s form one of the world’s largest commercial insurers and a leading reinsurer.
