Who said insurance was boring?
Not only will an insurance guy be refereeing the game tonight but Lloyds of London predicted a France v England final based on the insurable value of the teams.
And in 2014 they correctly predicted a win for Germany on the same basis.
Maybe Underwriters should be given a little bit more respect for their powers of risk prediction!
Last month the world’s specialist insurance and reinsurance market, which in 2014 correctly predicted Germany’s victory, revealed its forecast for this year’s tournament. Based on the collective insurable value of players, Lloyd’s named France (£1.4 billion) and England (£1.17 billion) as the top two sides.
