Welcome to this very Special Edition of the Market People
Magazine, the official publication of LMForums, written and
produced for insurance professionals and those with an interest
in the sector. Staying informed and connected with the Market
has never been more important, so in this Summer 2020 edition,
we have tried to cover many of the key topics discussed
and debated at the numerous London Market Forums virtual
roundtables, over the last few months of remote working.
We are very proud of this “Working From Home” edition,
featuring a range of thought-provoking industry content, as
well as the ever popular, lifestyle section. We asked some of our
Market friends to tell us about their Working from Home (WFH)
experience and how lockdown has impacted them. Life has
changed for all of us over the last few months, but the London
Market has continued to push forward and has adjusted well,
although LMForums Members tell us that they are anxious to
return to EC3. That being said, a return to “business as usual”
seems highly unlikely.
The role that technology has played during this period of remote
working cannot be overstated, with companies progressively
using new and existing technologies in order to stay connected
with their staff and offer their clients the best possible service.
We’ve come a long way, but it remains to be seen if our race for
digitalisation continues at the same pace when we return to the
workplace. We’ve added a special “Cyber” section this time to
reflect the activity and importance of this topic – it’s something
that impacts us equally in the workplace and at home.
COVID-19 has also had some positive impacts too, with our
planet and wildlife being given a brief chance to breathe
– we look at this with the help of our new environmental
This is our most content rich edition ever – we hope you enjoy
reading it. Please share a copy with your friends and colleagues.
We welcome your feedback. Most importantly, do take care
and stay healthy.
