Why Invest Now

Covid-19 has further increased the rate rises already being experienced in the global (re)insurance industry

Lloyd’s primary focus is on the long-term profitability of the market, meaning strict constraints for some but big opportunities for others

The modernisation, efficiency and innovation of Lloyd’s are also key objectives

The prospects for profitable investment at Lloyd’s continue to improve

Investors are currently able to take advantage of both a strengthening (re)insurance market and the modernisation and improved oversight at Lloyd’s:

Improved Premium rates

A fourth year of premium rate rises, following the two most costly consecutive years on record for major losses in 2017 and 2018, a challenging 2019, and the global effects of the Covid-19 pandemic upon the (re)insurance industry, have brought about a step-change in pricing in virtually every class of business.

The recent Supreme Court decision on UK Business Interruption claims, whilst not heavily involving the Lloyd’s market, is likely to increase pressure on (re)insurers with the consequent effect on premium rates and, as importantly, on policy wordings.

Improved Oversight

The 2020 syndicate business planning session was the most robust to date, leading to tight restrictions on the weaker syndicates and great opportunities for the best. Lloyd’s has as its priority the long-term profitability of the market, and indeed the first signs of a much-reduced underlying claims frequency showed in the figures for 2020.

At the same time, the continuing modernisation of Lloyd’s will lead to a leaner, more innovative, more efficient as well as more profitable market.

Improved Prospects for Profitability

The cost of entry reduced for third party capital during 2020, with an increase in the availability of top-class syndicate capacity through the market’s robustly managed growth.

As global pricing continues to improve, the opportunities for third party capital to invest profitably at Lloyd’s are further increasing.
