TS was surprised and amazed to learn this week that the City of London police is making enquiries into a case concerning the theft of hundreds of thousands of pounds from a Lloyd's of London brokerage. It is understood the case has been unfolding over a number of months and involves a London market brokerage which has since closed down. Large sums of money, allegedly as much as £500,000, went missing at roughly the same time as the brokerage's proprietor disappeared. So far it would seem like another fraud story, but at the start of this piece we said we were surprised and amazed by the story. So why are we surprised and amazed? The brokerage in question just so happened to be a specialist in ... commercial theft insurance. TS trusts the brokerage was adequately covered!
