Even with its steadfast reputation and streams of competent employees, working at Lloyd's isn't as straightforward as one might think. Simon Blunt already knows this after the expensive jewellery that Lloyd's was insuring was stolen and a frantic search began to recover the expensive artefacts before they were gone forever.
This time, $75 million has vanished, moments after striking up a deal with a new client. There's no easy way to find the culprit or culprits, and it's not long before there's a wild goose-chase all over Eastern Europe. With wrongdoers in disguise, murderers in the shadows and blackmailers waiting to pounce, Simon Blunt: The Broker shows you the inner workings of corporate banking and the shady undergrowth of those who try their luck against it.
Born and raised in Brighton, Jeff Funnell left school at sixteen and joined a London insurance company. After a series of junior positions over the next ten years, he joined a Lloyd's broking firm and worked as a broker in the non-marine market until his eventual retirement some thirty-eight years later.
