The Lloyd’s underwriting room closed from 16.00 on 19th March due to Covid-19. But it’s continued to operate thanks to Sue and her team at PPL.  

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. 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.
