Lloyd's is not a single insurance company; it is a market place where insurance and reinsurance risks are underwritten by syndicates of underwriting members. Subject to certain exceptions, only Lloyd's brokers can arrange insurance cover directly with Lloyd's underwriters, although other firms known as coverholders may be authorised to enter into contracts of insurance on behalf of Lloyd's underwriters.
