Marsh Named Best Trade Insurance Broker in the Americas by Trade Finance Magazine
Marsh has been named Best Trade Insurance Broker in the Americas in Trade Finance Magazine’s 2012 Awards for Excellence. The annual poll of the global trade finance market honors the best firms for their roles in keeping global trade flowing.
Commenting on the win, Evan Freely, Global Leader of Marsh’s Political Risk and Trade Credit Practice, said: “Trade credit insurance buyers continue to experience challenging conditions due to the ongoing European debt crisis and sluggish U.S. economic recovery.
“Marsh’s Political Risk and Trade Credit team works closely with clients to keep them abreast of the ever-changing market and to provide them with industry-leading risk advice and solutions to address their increasingly complex needs. We are very honored to receive recognition for these efforts from Trade Finance Magazine.”
The award for Best Trade Insurance Broker in the Americas comes on the heels of the $532 million trade credit policy Marsh brokered for the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation being selected as one of Trade Finance Magazine’s Deals of the Year for 2011.
