Understanding the Lloyd's Settlement Fund

The settlement in question pertains to a class action lawsuit against certain Lloyd's Syndicates, accused of concealing a lack of competition in the Lloyd's Market. The Settling Defendants have agreed to create a $7,900,000 Settlement Fund. After legal fees and other expenses are deducted, the remaining funds will be distributed to eligible Class Members based on the premiums paid for policies during the class period.


The distribution process is designed to ensure fairness, with payments calculated based on available data and information provided by claimants. The Claims Administrator will estimate the total premiums paid to the Defendants during the class period, and each Authorized Claimant will receive a pro-rata share of the Net Settlement Fund.
