Insurance Market & Placement

Across the broad spectrum of risks – from windstorm and flood to accidental pollution to terrorism – Marsh’s dedicated, international placement broker is here to help.

The global economic landscape continues to evolve, bringing complex challenges and changing risks. By securing comprehensive, tailored coverage and delivering innovative solutions that help protect against potentially costly losses, Marsh’s dedicated, specialist international placement broker, Bowring Marsh, can provide you with risk transfer solutions, benchmarking, and claims advocacy through its global insurance placement network.

We work closely with you to provide tailored international placement options that suit your business risks and exposures. With a deep understanding of industry challenges, we can innovate, customise, design, and place insurance programmes with international insurers.

Located across all major international insurance hubs, our team of 300 insurance brokers combine their comprehensive portfolio experience and in-depth knowledge of our clients’ risks, with the ability to have face-to-face negotiations with decision makers to prioritise which insurers to approach in which international market hub.

With 11 offices in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Continental Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, United States, and Bermuda, we drive price and coverage by putting international and domestic insurers into competition and by differentiating risks; whether you are a strategic insurance buyer, exposed to natural catastrophes, buying large property damage and/or third party liability limits due to the nature of your operations, or have an adverse claims experience.

International placement brokers deliver innovative and customized insurance solutions, taking into account your risk exposures and appetite wherever you are in the world. To help you effectively navigate insurance markets, international placement brokers must have specialized insurance and industry expertise, and are attuned to trends and developments in local markets.

Our portfolio of risks has allowed us to develop considerable experience and expertise – both industry and region-specific, as well as a deep understanding of industry risk challenges. This, together with our relationships with key decision makers in each of the major underwriting organizations, enables us to challenge the market to find you the most competitive terms and broadest coverage available.

International placement brokers work with their clients to understand their needs, engage the market, provide options, and tailor solutions that support their insurance and risk management objectives.

We have the expertise and industry perspective to understand potential gaps in your risk coverage. We are aware of emerging risks and provide innovative solutions, working with you to help you understand your potential international (re)insurance options. Our responsibility for facilitating global insurance coverage for many clients worldwide helps us maintain close working relationships with insurers in many different countries. 

Whether you are a small, single-site operation or one of the world’s leading multinational corporations, you can benefit from the risk transfer solutions, risk analysis and benchmarking, and claims consulting offered by international placement brokers.

Working alongside your local Marsh team, our international placement specialists’ aim is to add an extra dimension to the services we offer by optimizing price and coverage and offering a dynamic, global approach to insurance capacity purchasing.

Whether you do business in one country, a dozen, or more, we can help.
