Insurance facility composed of many different syndicates, each specializing in a particular risk; for example, hull risks. Lloyd's provides coverage for primary jumbo risks as well as offering reinsurance and retrocessions. Membership in a syndicate is limited to individuals with a large personal net worth, and each member may belong to one or more syndicates depending upon his or her net worth. Although much of the publicity Lloyd's receives involves insuring exotic risks such as an actress' legs, this represents only a very small portion of its total business, most of which involves reinsurance and retrocessions.
