Lloyd’s Executive Committee is meeting on a daily basis to ensure quick response to developments in the COVID-19 outbreak. Last Friday, 13 March, Lloyd’s closed the Underwriting Room to test that the market could trade electronically via PPL or the emergency trading protocols. This was successful, and as physical attendance at Lloyd’s has decreased rapidly since then, it was yesterday decided to close the Underwriting Room until further notice. The decision will be reviewed on a weekly basis, and the Lloyd’s building at One Lime Street will remain open for tenants, although this may also change in the future.
