The first electronic placement at Lloyd’s

Dateline Lloyd’s – 17 January 2011

“The placement of the first electronic, fully placed contract via iPad as well as the Message Exchange took place today marking another step forward in the fast-paced technological advancements in the London Market.”

In 2011, BMS was part of the first ever fully electronic placement via iPad at Lloyd’s, where the traditional Lloyd’s slip became an electronic story.

This initiative combined many of the best facets of BMS – strong leadership, clear sense of direction, a “can do, must do” attitude to innovation and a strong desire to provide a technological lead for the market whilst providing an improved process to clients and markets alike.

BMS partnered with Ri3k for this innovation which was awarded Fac Innovation of the Year.
