Insurance broker and risk advisor Marsh had signed a five-year broker agreement with HSBC, building on an 11-year relationship that began in 2010.

Marsh, a major insurance broker and risk expert, has struck a new broker relationship with HSBC.

The new five-year deal extends an 11-year partnership that began in 2010. On insurance solutions for corporates, the agreement includes seven markets: France, Hong Kong, mainland China, Mexico, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

“Insurance is a crucial element of risk mitigation; it protects firms against shocks and enables robust recoveries, should an incident occur,” said Chris Lay, CEO of Marsh UK & Ireland. We’re excited to expand Marsh’s partnership with HSBC as we continue to provide solutions for their consumers around the world.”

“We are convinced that this partnership with Marsh will deliver a more comprehensive array of services and products to our consumers, and offer best-in-class insurance solutions,” said Eric Emore, Global Head of International & Partnerships at HSBC Life. We’re looking forward to continuing and expanding our partnership.”
