About Hiscox London Market

 

“Whether it’s unparalleled underwriting at the Box, or thinking outside the box when it comes to our products, leading the way is at the heart of everything we do.”

– Kate Markham, Chief Executive Officer

In business since 1901, we are one of the most trusted and influential Lloyd’s syndicates. Known for our long-term leadership in the market, our blend of underwriting expertise and meaningful capacity offers reassurance whatever the size or complexity of your risk. 

Whether it be insuring family homes against a storm surge in the USA, protecting blue chip companies from the crippling costs of a cyber-attack, or helping to keep local businesses standing following a terrorist incident, Hiscox provides protection when it’s needed most.  

Over 60 of the world’s 100 largest companies place their trust in Hiscox London Market, knowing they’re in a safe pair of hands should the worst happen. And when a claim comes in, we’ll be looking for reasons to pay it quickly rather than excuses to delay. 

Our strength lies in our ability to offer products that are as unique as your business, so if you can’t find the right 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
