Benchmarking Papers

Marsh uses a proprietary risk-ranking system to provide an absolute measure of risk quality when compared against a defined set of criteria. From these rankings, Marsh developed its benchmarking tool to provide a proactive risk-improvement approach based on current standards and best practices, in sharp contrast to improvement plans that are based on historical performance. For many of our clients, Marsh’s bespoke benchmarking reports have already proved to be a catalyst for change. To get an understanding of our benchmarking capabilities take a look at our regional benchmarking reports below:
