Emerging Risks Special Interests Group

The special interests group brings together Lloyd's market representatives to discuss and feedback on emerging risks that could affect Lloyd's on a range of different timescales. The group is available to Lloyd's Managing Agents only.


The group as a whole will aim to highlight any areas of emerging risks they want to research and also discuss output from the Lloyd's Emerging Risks team. Any areas of specific or focused interest may produce sub-committees to ensure discussions are relevant to those who are interested. The special interests group meetings will be held quarterly, though additional meetings on specific topics will be held as and when they are required.  

Who are we? 

The special interests group was formed in May 2007 to act as a bridge between the Lloyd's Market and Lloyd's Emerging Risks team to identify key emerging risks that are of current and potentially future interest to the market. Meetings usually consist of an update on emerging risk topics from the Emerging Risks team, alongside a presentation from an expert external speaker on topics relevant to the group. 

Members of the special interests group consist of a mixture of underwriters, analysts and modellers from the Lloyd's Market covering many classes of business including, marine, livestock, property and energy.
