Insight & Outlook


We aim to generate original thinking on issues of common interest.

This strategic initiative will leverage the tremendous intellectual capital in our Market to support growth by:

  • Curating knowledge and intelligence from in and outside the market to stimulate debate around common problems and collective solutions.
  • Commissioning research or partnering with academic institutions or think tanks to go broader and deeper into each topic of interest.
  • Encouraging fresh thinking and stimulating action.
  • Dave Matcham

Since the launch of this initiative in February 2019 our work has been mainly focused on preparing London Matters 2020. The report has established itself as a key document for our industry as it acts as a basis for discussion about the Market, its position in the global industry and the issues it faces when looking to the future. Having a fact-based approach to our thinking and planning has helped us to gain unprecedented levels of market and government engagement across our work.

In addition to our work on London Matters 2020, and as part of our drive to give London Market participants greater insights, we have collaborated with the supplier of Eventwatch® a 24/7 world event alert “app” that market participants can download for free. Further information on this can be found below.

London Matters 2020

On the 19th May 2020 the London Market Group’s launched its influential report which tracks the growth and development of the London insurance market over time. Since 2010 we have been tracking the key data on the market including its overall size, the breakdown by class of business, geographical sources of risks and its financial contribution. In this report we also looked specifically at investment in the London Market, the contribution that claims make to the wider global economy and changes to the make-up of insurers within the market. This report analyses these key trends as we head into a new, technologically-driven era that will disrupt existing business models and redefine customer relationships.
