Name

A wealthy individual who provides a great deal of capital that underwrites the activities of Lloyd's of London. Names spread risk of insurance among themselves along with corporations. For most of Lloyd's centuries-long history, names had unlimited liability for any losses associated with being a name. Lloyd's introduced names with limited liability in 1994, and they have become increasingly important.
