Brokers & Distribution

Brokers provide a vital cog in the global specialty re/insurance marketplace, with their role continuingly evolving beyond a mechanism simply to place business. The advisory services provided by brokers now form a critical part of their value offering. The broking landscape is also shifting with major merger and acquisition activity creating opportunities for growing firms to expand in core markets and attract staff who have been displaced in the fallout from major deals.
