Following the global pandemic, the world of work has changed and as a Market, we are learning to adapt to a new environment. The dust has far from settled and businesses and individuals are still carving out a new relationship. For 300+ years, the London Market has thrived through the power of personal relationships and connections, being built up through not only one’s direct working colleagues, but across the wider population, who make up our incredible global broking and underwriting centre.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll have had moments recently where it’s been difficult to remember what day, week, or month we’re in—such is life in the third national lockdown.
Things should get easier as spring arrives, with the weather improving, the days growing longer and, fingers crossed, the pandemic restrictions gradually being lifted.

If you managed to enjoy some time off during the period my normally associate with “holiday” season, then I hope you had a good break.
It certainly has been a year that we won’t forget, but interestingly enough, through all of our work in the Market, we’ve seen some really encouraging signs.
Welcome to this first edition of the new style LMForums newsletter.
Our aim is to bring you a selection of quality news and educational content each month, which reflects some of the key topics we see and hear through the multitude of events we produce and host within the Market.
