Hear what top London market chief executives think at our next free online event, on November 26

High costs are still the biggest problem facing the London market, according to a poll conducted by Insurance Day, pipping Covid-19, technological change, and Brexit.

Some 35% of respondents saw the London market’s unusually high cost base as its biggest problem, against 26% for Brexit, and 20% apiece for Covid-19 and technological change.
