How London grew into a financial powerhouse

Foreign and British insurers are clustered close to the world’s leading insurance and reinsurance marketplace: Lloyd’s of London on Lime Street. There has not yet been a significant movement of staff from London’s insurance industry, but many have set up new EU subsidiaries. Most significantly, Lloyd’s of London has established a new office in Brussels. Others including AIG and Travelers have set up bases in cities including Luxembourg, Dublin and Madrid. Several law firms, including Pinsent Masons, Simmons & Simmons and DAC Beachcroft have opened offices in Dublin. Big Four accounting firms PwC, EY, Deloitte and KPMG had big operations in EU countries going into Brexit.
