The Magazine for the London Insurance Market


Introduction


Welcome to the magazine produced exclusively for the London Insurance Market - the home of global insurance and reinsurance. Market People Magazine aims to bring amazing content and cutting edge features directly to professionals working in the heart of London’s historic financial district.
Our magazine embraces the whole community from industry professionals to the thousands of people who provide essential products and services, ranging from legal, IT and consultancy businesses to restaurants, food outlets and fitness centres. This publication brings the community together as one - it is truly a Market where the people are the most important asset, and Market People Magazine celebrates this.

Issue Two


Welcome to the second issue of Market People Magazine, the official publication of LMForums, the networking and thought-leadership group for the London Insurance Market. Our first issue was warmly received by the whole insurance community, so we hope you enjoy this edition.
We appointed some amazing journalists to bring you features on the impact of Brexit on the EC3 community, how the spate of merger and acquisition activity is shaping our landscape and we look at how blockchain is promising to disrupt our conventional model.
In our lifestyle section, we look at new approaches to staying well, the return of supersonic flights and we take a look at the often overlooked South American magical destination of Cartagena. Do look out our coverage from the 2017 Market People Awards - see all the winners.
We invite practitioners from our Market to contribute to this exciting publication, so do get in touch if you would like to write for future editions. As the name of this magazine suggests, this is a publication written by Market people for Market people and we hope you enjoy it.
