International Underwriting Association of London
The International Underwriting Association of London (IUA) is the focal representative and market organisation for non-Lloyd’s international and wholesale insurance and reinsurance companies operating in the London Market.
The IUA exists to promote and enhance the business environment for international insurance and reinsurance companies operating in or through London.
The IUA was formed on 31 December 1998, through the merger of the London International Insurance and Reinsurance Market Association (LIRMA) and the Institute of London Underwriters (ILU). This union brought together the representative bodies for the marine and non-marine sectors of the London company insurance market.
The ILU’s history in the marine, aviation and transport insurance markets dates back to 1884. Senior members of marine insurance companies had, since the 1850s, been meeting informally in the Jerusalem Coffee House and the Jamaica Wine Rooms near the Royal Exchange to discuss policy wordings and other matters of mutual interest. A proposal was made to establish a formal representative underwriting association in July 1882 and two years later the new ILU took up offices in the Royal Exchange Buildings.
LIRMA was formed in 1991 from the merger of previous insurance associations, established in the 1960s and 1970s, to support non-marine insurance business and reinsurance.

Lloyd’s of London
Our unique insurance market has an unrivalled concentration of specialist underwriting expertise and every day, more than 50 leading insurance companies, over 200 registered Lloyd’s brokers and a global network of over 4,000 local coverholders operate in and bring business to the Lloyd’s market. The business written at Lloyd’s is brought to specialist syndicates, who price and underwrite risk, via brokers and coverholders. Much of the capital available at Lloyd’s is provided on a subscription basis – where Lloyd’s underwriters join together as syndicates and where syndicates join together to underwrite risks and programmes. This kind of collaboration, combined with the choice, flexibility and financial certainty of the market, makes Lloyd’s the world’s leading insurance platform. But in an unpredictable global climate, Lloyd’s underwriters must also rely on their experience and industry knowledge to cast light into the darkness ahead. Behind the Lloyd’s market is the Lloyd’s Corporation, not itself an insurer but an independent organisation and regulator that acts to protect and maintain the market’s reputation and provides services and original research, reports and analysis to the industry’s knowledge base. Under one globally trusted name, the Lloyd’s market and Lloyd’s Corporation work together to protect your interests, promote economic growth and underwrite human progress.
