The coffee house soon became recognised as an ideal place for obtaining marine insurance. The shop was also frequented by mariners involved in the slave trade. Historian Eric Williams notes: The Royal Exchange was destroyed by fire in San Francisco earthquake[ edit ] On 18 Aprila major earthquake and resulting fires destroyed more than 80 per cent of the Californian city of San Francisco.
This event was to have a profound influence on building practices, risk modelling, and the insurance industry. It was estimated that around 90 per cent of the damage to the city was caused by the resultant fires.

This report advocated the widening of membership to non-market participants, including non-British subjects and then women, and the reduction of the onerous capitalisation requirements thus creating a minor investor known as a "mini-Name".

Many of these policies were open-peril policies, meaning that they covered any claim not specifically excluded. Other policies called standard, or broad only cover stated perils, such as fire.
An employee at an industrial plant may have been exposed to asbestos in the s, fallen ill 20 years later and claimed compensation from his former employer in the s. The employer would report a claim to the insurance company that wrote the policy in the s.
However, because the insurer did not fully understand the nature of the future risk back in the s, it and its reinsurers would not have properly priced or reserved for it. At the end of the year, the syndicate as an ongoing trading entity was effectively disbanded.
