Lloyds of London

Group tour at Lloyds today. Just an absolutely spectacular visit, and in a sense it was overwhelming but we managed to get a sneak peak at how fast paced underwriting, insurance, and re-insurance is with the best of the best. Thanks to our your guide Charlotte we were able to have live commentary while we navigated through the controlled chaos.

Financial District

You can feel the vibe walking down the street. Tall modern skyscrapers shooting up between some of the oldest architecture in the world. Right by the London Bridge the financial district has prime location for young and well seasoned professionals. Thanks for taking us Dr. Coleman & Dr. Johnson!

Alumni Visit

Hartfordbusiness traveled to AIG of the UK today. With the help of a successful MBA alumni, top executives took time out of their day to let us tap into their wealth of knowledge. Some may be skeptical of AIG due to the “crisis” of 2008, but the company is so internationally involved that the government took part in aiding them to become more strong and successful than ever. Now owning 81%, AIG will continue to penetrate new and emerging markets while fortifying their current markets in many counties abroad. Thank you for having us AIG!

AIG

What a day at AIG (American International Group). After enjoying a light lunch, we learned about the inner workings of AIG and the financial service markets in the UK! We were lucky enough to listen to the CFO, COO, CMO, and head of global distribution for Europe, the middle east, and Africa. What a great experience!
