Marsh, the world’s leading insurance broker and risk advisor, today announced the appointment of Rob Perry as Global Political Risk & Structured Credit Leader, Marsh Specialty, effective July 1.

With over 850 colleagues in over 57 countries, Marsh Specialty’s Credit Specialties team brings together key credit risk transfer solutions including political risk & structured credit insurance, trade credit insurance, surety and financial risk products.
In his new role, Mr. Perry will oversee the development of Marsh Specialty’s political risk and structured credit capabilities globally, and will work closely with regional leaders to deliver deep product and industry knowledge that supports clients in mitigating the increasingly complex geopolitical and credit issues they now face.
Mr. Perry is currently Asia Credit Specialties Leader, a position he has held since 2019.

Commenting on Mr. Perry’s appointment, Mr. Robson said: “Marsh Specialty has developed a leading position in political risk and structured credit advisory and insurance, through assisting our clients to realise growth while also navigating an unprecedented period of geopolitical and economic risk.

Rob is an exceptional leader and his extensive international experience will help us to strengthen and grow the capabilities of our global team to deliver credit, performance and country risk solutions to our clients in all regions of the world.”
Mr. Perry added: “While the conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues to have a terrible humanitarian impact and is affecting people and businesses beyond regional borders, in the future rising competition for national supremacy over soil, sea, and space will also fuel global geopolitical tensions.
