Our unique insurance market has an unrivalled concentration of specialist underwriting expertise and every day, more than 50 leading insurance companies, over 200 registered Lloyds brokers and a global network of over 4,000 local coverholders operate in and bring business to the Lloyds market.
The business written at Lloyds is brought to specialist syndicates, who price and underwrite risk, via brokers and coverholders. Much of the capital available at Lloyds is provided on a subscription basis where Lloyd's underwriters join together as syndicates and where syndicates join together to underwrite risks and programmes. This kind of collaboration, combined with the choice, flexibility and financial certainty of the market, makes Lloyds the worlds leading insurance platform.
But in an unpredictable global climate, Lloyds underwriters must also rely on their experience and industry knowledge to cast light into the darkness ahead. Behind the Lloyds market is the Lloyds Corporation, not itself an insurer but an independent organisation and regulator that acts to protect and maintain the market's reputation and provides services and original research, reports and analysis to the industrys knowledge base.
Under one globally trusted name, the Lloyds market and Lloyds Corporation work together to protect your interests, promote economic growth and underwrite human progress.
