Marsh launches Global Alternative Risk Solutions practice


Marsh has announced the launch of Global Alternative Risk Solutions, a practice which brings together Marsh‘s expertise and strategy in parametric solutions, alternative risk transfer, captives, and complex risk. The practice will leverage Marsh’s vast resources, data, and technologies to drive innovation and accelerate the development of new risk solutions for the benefit of clients.
