Leading the Way in Transparency
We will disclose to you:
- the role or roles we perform in an insurance transaction,
- a list of the insurers we propose to approach on your behalf and,
- any equity interests we may have in those insurers.
In common with many financial organisations, we provide a range of services to a large number of clients. We also provide certain services to insurers. Situations may arise in which the interest of a client may conflict with those of another client or with our own interest. Accordingly, we have policies and procedures in place to ensure that should such circumstances arise, they are managed appropriately.
You can read further details about how we manage conflicts of interest within the Marsh and McLennan Companies Code of Conduct – The Greater Good.
We aim to be clear with you as to how we are paid, information on this subject can be found in our Guide on How We are Paid In addition, you can view the list of insurers [PDF] with whom we have consulting agreements, Placement Plus and quota share arrangements.
If you have any questions, issues or concerns regarding how we are paid, then please contact your client executive or account representative.
