Lloyd's of London
Lloyd's of London is the world's leading insurance and reinsurance marketplace, with a common purpose to understand and share society's risk. The biggest deal for Lloyd's was insuring the infamous Titanic. Numerous Lloyd’s syndicates put their names on the slip, covering amounts ranging from £10,000 to £75,000. Even though the entrance to the building is limited to insurance business related groups and university or business schools studying business or finance, the beauty of the office can be marvelled from the outside.
