Lloyd’s has responded positively to Aon’s decision to switch its corporate headquarters from Chicago to London.

Aon announced its plans this morning as part of a move to give it better access to emerging markets and closer proximity to Lloyd’s and the London market.

Lloyd’s chairman John Nelson (pictured above) said: “This is very good news for the London insurance market and for Lloyd’s.

“It will help reinforce London’s position in the global insurance marketplace.”
