Lloyd’s of London

Unlike many other insurance brands, Lloyd's is not a company; it's a market where our members join together as syndicates to insure risk. Much of Lloyd’s business works by subscription, where more than one syndicate takes a share of the same risk. Business is conducted face-to-face between brokers and underwriters in the Underwriting Room. When we talk of Lloyd’s, we’re really referring to two distinct parts. The market, which is made up of many independent businesses, and the Corporation of Lloyd’s, which is there – broadly speaking – to oversee that market. These parts are distinct, but far from independent. Both work closely to maintain high standards of performance across the market.

The Managing General Agents Association

Managing General Agents (MGAs) are an important, established and fast-growing sector of the UK insurance industry. Over 300 MGAs currently underwrite over 10% of the UK’s £47 billion general insurance market premiums. MGAs deserve specific representation to lobby on their behalf, communicate their considerable benefits and drive best practice. The Managing General Agents’ Association (MGAA) was formed in 2011 to fulfil this role. As a not-for-profit organisation, the MGAA, and its board of directors and specialist committees focus 100% on shaping the future of delegated underwriting in the UK.
