4 Market Reform Page 3 Why reform? Sharpen London’s competitive edge and client service Competitive pressure –From other insurance centres (Marine 32% 1988, 15% 2006; Bermuda has grown at 7x the rate of London since 2000) –From other financial services sectors (eg bond markets) –‘Smouldering’ platform Customers dissatisfied with the speed of processing –Lloyd’s customer survey - market poor on: speed of contract documentation; information about claims; speed of claims settlement Regulatory pressure –Dec 2004: FSA CEO John Tiner challenges market to put an end to “deal now, detail later” culture –Emphasis on achieving contract certainty or face rules to enforce it

Deliver more for less… Reverse the trend and make London the market of choice Collaboration between firms can deliver a larger, more competitive market Addressing inefficiencies will reduce costs and remove barriers to business coming to London Reform is aimed at delivering more profitable business to London => delivering to your bottom line
