We’ve been at the centre of the insurance world since 1901 and have grown to be one of the most trusted and respected Lloyd’s insurance syndicates. But while our long history has been successful, we know our future success lies in our continued ability to help clients manage their risks in a complex, volatile and fast-changing world. The risks our clients face today will not be the same risks they face tomorrow, making it our job to innovate and provide the insurance and risk transfer solutions clients can rely on to safeguard their future.
Over 60 of the world’s 100 largest companies together with thousands of other businesses and individuals, place their trust in Hiscox London Market; relying on us to help them manage and mitigate risks whether it’s the threat of a cyber attack, a terrorist incident, a major flood, or a kidnap for ransom.
"Embracing risk in an evolving world’ is about our bold and pioneering underwriting approach. It relates to everything that’s happened in the past two years from the pandemic to the Ukraine war, to the energy crisis and transition to net zero, from technological shifts to the power of data and digital. Hiscox London Market is ready to embrace the new risks that emerge as the world around us evolves to ensure we meet our clients’ ever changing insurance needs."
Kate Markham, CEO

- Property – from commercial premises to private households
- Marine, energy and specialty – from cargo, to marine hull, and space
- Casualty – from general liability, to D&O, and cyber
- Crisis management – from terrorism to kidnap and ransom
While we’re financially strong – Hiscox Syndicate 33 has an A (Excellent) rating from A.M. Best – our strength also lies in our ability to offer products that are as unique as your business. If you can’t find the right insurance solution to your problem, challenge us to develop one.
“Rather than asking ‘why’ when challenged with a risk, we’d prefer to say “why not?”
Paul Lawrence, Chief Underwriting Officer
