Investment - Articles - Mazars comments on the Aon and Willis Towers Watson deal

Further M&A opportunities from this deal will materialise and ripples of this move will be felt throughout the market for some time to come

 Simon Fitzsimmons, Director, Mazars Deal Advisory – M&A:“Another blockbuster deal in the global insurance broking market, seeing brokers ranked 2 & 3 combine together to become the largest global insurance broker, knocking Marsh off its current perch. The CMA will no doubt deliberate on the transaction before giving its blessing (which also needs shareholder approval) – however, speculation already abounds that some of the combined divisions will need to be spun-off to appease the CMA as the market options for clients are compressed even further by this merger following that of Marsh and JLT only a year ago.
 Further M&A opportunities from this deal will materialise either indirectly through chance spin-offs or directly as a result of the CMA decision, and with a predicted c£1bn of synergies, the ripples of this move will be felt throughout the market for some time to come.”
