Specialist insurance market Lloyd's of London returned to profit yesterday despite Superstorm Sandy causing one of the largest claims in its 325-year history.
The surplus of £2.8bn is in sharp contrast to a year ago, when Lloyd's recorded a loss of £516m in what turned out to be the second most expensive year on record for the industry.
