Watch the full video at https://rumble.com/vp0ice-the-modern-market-at-lloyds.html and at https://youtu.be/KYJxRBpWEH8 The market at Lloyd & # 39 ;s is a place where groups of individuals and companies can take out insurance. After hundreds of years, it has developed a strict method of placing insurance policies. It has been described as follows:
The Corporation of Lloyd & # 39 ;s never sells insurance itself and is not at risk on insurance sold on the floor at Lloyd & # 39 ;s. Rather, the guarantors sign to cover all or part of a proposed placement of insurance, of their choice. The number of individual insurers, many in England but others scattered around the world, have joined forces to form a syndicate. Syndicates can have anywhere from two or three to hundreds of members. The individual members are known as the "names" of that syndicate. These syndicates are the entities that subscribe on behalf of their members to cover risks and percentages of risks. The actual potential liability for a particular name depends on his percentage of the syndicate of which he is a member, as well as the percentage of the risk that his syndicate has subscribed for.
Lloyd & # 39 ;s is now the market for last resort; Unlike other insurance companies, Lloyd & # 39 ;s offers sufficient affordable insurance against almost all risks. The Lloyd & # 39 ;s system is so successful that it has been imitated worldwide. Stock exchanges or markets have opened in Illinois, New York and Florida, and none of them have even approached Lloyd & # 39 ;s success.
Lloyd & # 39 ;s also reinsures (insures insured by insurance companies) almost all insurers in the business
Most. Names or investors do not actively participate in the insurance market on a daily basis … Rather, the business of insuring risks on Lloyd & # 39 ;s is run by groups of names called "Syndicates". … In order to increase the effectiveness of the insurance risks, a group of names will, for a given financial year, form a "Syndicate" which in turn signs policies on behalf of all names in the syndicate. Typisk A typical Lloyd & # 39 ;s insurance has several syndicates that together are responsible for 100 percent of the coverage that an insurance provides. … The syndicates themselves have been said to have no independent legal identity. … Thus, a syndicate is a creature of administrative convenience through which individual investors can sign a Lloyds policy. A syndicate bears no responsibility for the risk of a Lloyd & # 39 ;s policy. Rather, all responsibility is borne by the individual names belonging to the various syndicates that have signed a policy.
Lloyd & # 39 ;s marketplace is considered a last resort as almost all risks can be covered by certain Lloyd & # 39 ;s insurers. However, it is more important because of its history and impact on insurance as it is written and works today. It is important to understand the Lloyd & # 39 ;s market to understand how insurance works.
