In the UK, General insurance is broadly divided into three areas; personal lines, commercial lines and London market.
The London market insures large commercial risks, for example insuring supermarkets, football players and other very specific risks. It consists of a number of insurers, reinsurers, [P&I Clubs], brokers and other companies that are typically physically located in the City of London. The Lloyd's of London is a big participant in this market. The London Market also participates in personal lines and commercial lines, domestic and foreign, through reinsurance.
