With effect from 1st January 2015, the Council of Lloyd's mandated that all members of Lloyd's must be UK tax resident.
Consequently, investors may only participate through UK tax resident companies, "NameCo’s", or if in a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) then all partners must be UK tax resident. Further advice on this is available from Hampden Marketing Team.

Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. Underwriting at Lloyd’s is a high risk investment. Members underwriting through Limited Liability Vehicles (LLVs) are exposed to the potential of losing the entire assets of the LLV. Independent financial advice should always be sought before any underwriting commitment is made by a potential or existing member.
