Company Lloyd's

"Through the collective intelligence and risk-sharing expertise of the market’s underwriters and brokers, Lloyd’s helps to create a braver world."

Lloyd’s is the world’s leading insurance and reinsurance marketplace.

The Lloyd’s market provides the leadership and insight to anticipate and understand risk, and the knowledge to develop relevant, new and innovative forms of insurance for customers globally. It offers the efficiencies of shared resources and services in a marketplace that covers and shares risks from more than 200 territories, in any industry, at any scale.

And it promises a trusted, enduring partnership built on the confidence that Lloyd’s protects what matters most: helping people, businesses and communities to recover in times of need.

Lloyd’s began with a few courageous entrepreneurs in a coffee shop. Three centuries later, the Lloyd’s market continues that proud tradition, sharing risk in order to protect, build resilience and inspire courage everywhere.

First things first: we’re not an insurance company. Nor are we connected with any bank. Lloyd’s is actually a market where risks that need to be covered are put to insurers who can provide protection, ensuring that social and economic progress can continue across the globe. And as a Corporation, we enable that protection; managing the space and overseeing all aspects of the business.

What’s the market?

The Lloyd’s market is where deals happen. Every day, people, businesses and communities in over 200 countries and territories rely on the Lloyd’s market to protect what matters most. And every day, more than 50 leading insurance companies, 200 registered brokers and a global network of over 3,800 coverholder office locations work together in the Lloyd’s market to do just that.

Established in a coffee house in the 17th Century, the Lloyd's market is now a world-renowned space 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.
