“Our new Global Wholesale Committee comprises a group of experienced, established leaders, who between them have extensive knowledge of a range of international markets,” said Andy Marcell, CEO of Aon Reinsurance Solutions.

“They will work together to bring new risk transfer opportunities to clients and carriers, and assist them to achieve their strategic growth objectives,” said Marcell.

Frankland added: “One of the aims of the committee will be to enhance the flow of business coming into the London and wider wholesale market, leveraging our operating and technology platform ABConnect placements to support growth. In this regard, our new global wholesale committee is perfectly positioned to deliver increased opportunities.”
