This paper examines the development of London’s marine insurance market, one of the City’s most enduring success stories, through the analytical framework of New Institutional Economics – although from the standpoint of a sceptic of this theoretical construction. The paper shows how marine insurance institutions, endogenous and exogenous, developed alongside England’s increasing importance in ocean-going trade to favour the early and sustained primacy of London marine insurers on the international stage.
