The Virtual Room is a platform that enables the Lloyd’s community to connect digitally.

We developed the Virtual Room as part of our Future at Lloyd’s strategy to provide a way for underwriters and brokers to continue to connect efficiently and effectively while working remotely. This became particularly important as working practices changed to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Why should you use the Virtual Room?

Launched in September 2020 with the US Property class of business, we have continued to conduct research with users to identify features to support and enhance their experience of the Virtual Room. In January 2021 we opened the Virtual Room to all classes of business located in the UK. We encourage brokers and underwriters to get on board as soon as possible to reap the benefits and shape the future of the Virtual Room.


Brokers will be able to use the Virtual Room to access a real-time view of underwriters’ profiles and risk appetites, and the scheduling and flexible chat features will enable brokers to set up and run virtual meetings with underwriters.

Underwriters will be able to use the scheduling and flexible chat features to share their areas of expertise and risk appetite, so that brokers can easily find them, set up and run virtual meetings.
