LONDON (Reuters) – Lloyd’s of London has received 80 applications from firms seeking to set up cost-efficient remote syndicates, its Chief Executive John Neal told a conference on Tuesday.

The British insurance market, which comprises 99 members and focuses on large commercial insurance, is offering syndicates the ability to set up without a physical presence at its City of London base, under wide-ranging plans to modernize its 330-year old business.

Lloyd’s said in September that reinsurance group Munich Re, which already has a presence at Lloyd’s, was setting up the first remote “syndicate-in-a-box” to focus on newer insurance areas including renewable energy.
