Our clients deserve our finest effort when they engage Marsh to obtain insurance coverage. A key component of this is the placement process — determining appropriate insurers for the types of risk involved and negotiating with those insurers on behalf of our clients to obtain optimal coverage at a competitive price.
Marsh is fully committed to the principle of transparency in our insurance transactions. As part of that commitment, we have created a Compensation Guide for Canadian Clients — a publication that summarizes our key Canada business segments, describes the types of compensation we might receive, and explores our continued commitment to transparency and managing conflicts of interest.
In addition, we have established a toll-free "Ethics & Compliance" line at 800-381-2105. Please use this number to submit any concerns or complaints you may have related to compensation paid or payable to Marsh by insurers or any other third parties.
Available here is information for clients and prospective clients regarding (1) equity interests of Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. and its subsidiaries in insurers, (2) contractual arrangements between Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. and its subsidiaries, (3) ENCON Group Inc., and (4) Premium Finance - Marsh Income Disclosure Statement.
