Over 75% of the S&P 500 index value relates to intangible assets yet insurance only covers 5% of this. Join this presentation to hear from the Head Of Innovation at Lloyd’s of London to find out how they have been working with underwriters to close the gap. The talk will give an overview of innovation at Lloyd’s and then deep dive into how risk transfer can help protect company reputation, intellectual property and even human capital assets.
