Inside Lloyd's of London

You don’t just stop by Lloyd’s of London for an unannounced visit. Even if you happen to be in London.

Access to the world’s most famous insurance market is limited to registered Lloyd’s brokers or invited visitors.  But a group of Penn State Harrisburg finance majors was able to get a rare look inside Lloyd’s during the college’s most recent international study tour to London in March. Their visit was possible through a connection with Lloyd’s that was made by Penn State Harrisburg alumna Christine Sears. Sears, a long-time member of the Penn State Harrisburg Board of Advisers, is executive vice president and chief operating officer of Penn National Insurance in Harrisburg.
