""Robert Kiln's Predictions on Lloyd's and Reinsurance 1968-1993"" should be of interest for those connected with Lloyd's and reinsurance.;Robert Kiln's name is almost synonymous with reinsurance, and he is well known as an innovative underwriter who has been responsible for many developments in non-marine insurance. He played an active role in Lloyd's affairs and was Chairman of R.J. Kiln & Co. from 1962 to 1985.;This book brings together his key speeches and writings during this important 25-year period in the history and development of Lloyd's and the reinsurance business, and charts his transition from sharing in the general optimism of the 1960s and 1970s to an increasing pessimism and frustration with events at Lloyd's from 1979 onwards. He was one of the first people to warn of the dangers of long tail business and its under-reserving, for example.;This anthology gives the reader an insight into Lloyd's and the reinsurance market and an insider's view of the policies and events which led to the recent problems at Lloyd's. Key points about the book are: a foreword by Sir David Rowland, Chairman of Lloyd's; a collection of predictions from a highly respected figure in Lloyd's and reinsurance; the author's articles and speeches have foreshadowed much of what has happened and is still happening; and an insider's view of Lloyd's and the reinsurance market.
