LONDON (Reuters) – Insurer Brit and Google Cloud are launching the first digital Lloyd’s of London syndicate, accessible from anywhere and at any time, Brit said in a statement on Wednesday.

Lloyd’s is pushing its members towards more digital trading, a move that has been accelerated by restrictions on traditional face-to-face trading due to the coronavirus pandemic.
