What is an Underwriter?
Why is an underwriter called an underwriter?
It all started with Edward Lloyd of London in the 1680s. Mr Lloyd operated a coffeehouse near the London wharves and as a service to his customers (sea captains, shippers & traders) he put up a bulletin board on which he posted the sailing dates of ships, the names of the captains, the ships’ destinations, descriptions of the cargoes and other relevant information.
Those who were interested in accepting a share of the risk of the voyage based on the information provided by Mr Lloyd would write their names under the posting and, alongside their name, the percentage of the risk they were willing to assume.
This was how the term underwriter was first introduced…the person who evaluates the risk involved.
