On the day that Britain formally began the process of leaving the European Union, Lloyd's announced it would open an office in Brussels so it could provide uninterrupted service to continental European customers. This was clearly not an overnight decision. Since the announcement of the referendum, the UK insurance industry has been contemplating how an 'out' vote would affect it.

It was the anniversary of the double terrorist attacks in Brussels in 2016. Less than two weeks later, a bomb exploded in the metro in St Petersburg. Paris, Nice and Berlin have also been targeted within the last two years.
