Underwriting

The underwriting team supports and represents the interests of the Lloyd's underwriting community through a large number of class of business-specific committees, panels and working groups. The team is grouped into three areas: marine/aviation/offshore energy, non-marine and wordings/delegated authorities. The committees are managed by a team of eleven LMA technical executives with extensive cross-class experience within the Lloyd’s and London insurance market. Their role is to offer class of business insight and technical support, to achieve market consensus where appropriate, as well as to inform and influence market oversight decisions.

The team is overseen by Mel Goddard, Market Liaison & Underwriting Director, and comprises:
