Lloyd's co-ordinated binder audit

The Lloyd’s delegated authorities team is driving an initiative to coordinate the audits of those Lloyd’s coverholders that have multiple binders with different lead underwriters.

This initiative, which represents a key action in our strategic objective of making it easier to do business with Lloyd’s, has been well supported by Lloyd’s managing agents and brokers.

This case study has been written by Mark Taylor of Turnstone Insurance and Reinsurance Services and details the audit of AJ Gallagher undertaken on behalf of Lloyd’s syndicates late last year.
