Digitally transforming with Susan Jakobek

PPL is the London market’s electronic placing platform which enables brokers and insurers to place business digitally. This removes paper from the process and creates a digital information flow audit trail. With the Lloyd’s underwriting room closed from 16.00 on the 19th March due to COVID-19, PPL is now an essential part of the London Market and how it can continue to operate in extraordinary times. It is enabling all brokers and underwriters to work together, remotely. Because it’s a single market solution and a fully digital platform which covers all classes of risks placed in the Lloyd’s market, it’s used by over 250 market firms. With the traditional Lloyd’s boxes not operating at the moment during the COVID-19 crisis, the team at PPL, led by Susan, is offering free WebEx training sessions and has made a range of e-learning materials available.


Our co-founders Barnaby Parker and Ashleigh MacFarlane are getting ready to interview Susan and find out more about her work. In the meantime why not read some more about PPL here:
