And speaking of 9/11…
Our condolences to all who lost loved ones on 9-11 — our thoughts particularly go to the many heroic 9-11 first responders – both those who lost their lives, and those who continue to suffer today with the mental and physical after-effects.

Our thoughts also gravitate to the many in our industry who lost their lives while doing their jobs. Marsh lost 293 colleagues and 63 consultants and Aon lost 176 colleagues. Astounding still today. Hug a colleague in their memory. Be kind to those around you.

Robert Hartwig and Claire Wilkinson of the Insurance Information Institute have produced some reports on the impact of 9/11 on the insurance industry – as well as the documented need for renewal of a terrorism insurance backstop.
