LONDON (Reuters) - Lloyd’s of London [SOLYD.UL] said on Tuesday it would continue to honour contractual commitments including the payment of valid insurance claims even if Britain exits the European Union without a transitional deal in place.

Lloyd’s is in the process of setting up a subsidiary in Brussels to which it is transferring all European Economic Area business and is authorised to write all EEA business from Jan. 1, 2019.
