Creates leading corporate risk and strata insurance offering in Australia and New Zealand   

Sydney, 1 December 2023 – Marsh, the world’s leading insurance broker and risk advisor and a business of Marsh McLennan (NYSE: MMC), today announced that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Honan Insurance Group, a leading specialist insurance broker in the areas of corporate risk, employee benefits, and strata and real estate insurance.
