Reinforcing the Value of the London Market

Following a year of significant change and reform across the London market, (re)insurers are looking for ways to capitalize on what could be the London market’s Renaissance moment. But those changes do not come without risks, one of which is that the reforms that Lloyd’s has put in place will be squandered if the market reverts back to its normal course of business. In order to capitalize on these important market reforms – and reinforce the value of the London market – (re)insurers must be disciplined and work together with Lloyd’s and others in the market to ensure that London retains its position as the global hub of specialty risks.
