11/02/17 House Bill H.R. 1 Announced on November 2, 2017
House Bill H.R. 1 Announced on November 2, 2017:

Aon has deep roots in the London insurance markets and in 2012 Aon plc became the common parent of the group. This allowed us to drive strategic growth through our deep partnership with Lloyds and greater access to emerging markets. It also allowed us to put in place a global capital structure for Aon and manage our cash globally. This global capital structure created flexibility for Aon, which remains there today, and enables us to react to regulatory changes well.

Aon currently believes the plan as proposed on November 2nd, 2017 does not prohibit investment into the US via inter-company debt, external debt and royalty payments. The new tax plan also provides for a dramatic reduction in the US headline rate to 20%.

The Company does not intend to provide any further comment until final legislation is enacted....

Aon Benfield, the global reinsurance intermediary and capital advisor of Aon plc (NYSE:AON), today launches its annual Homeowners' ROE Outlook report, which forecasts continued growth in direct US homeowners' insurance premiums for 2017 despite a decreasing return on equity for insurers.

Meanwhile, Florida insurers achieved an average rate increase of five percent during the period, which will likely be insufficient to maintain their current ROE levels given the increased costs facing the state's carriers from benefits and claims adjustments.

09/11/17 Hurricane Harvey highlights magnitude of insurance protection gap, according to Aon outlook report
Over-capitalized insurance industry at odds with environment of global under-insurance Aon Benfield , the global reinsurance intermediary and capital advisor of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), today releases the September 2017 edition of its Reinsurance Market Outlook report, which assesses the key drivers of reinsurance supply and demand in the approach to the January 1 renewals. The report finds that a significant proportion of the unprecedented flood losses generated by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana will be uninsured, again highlighting the existence of a global protection gap. As a result, those affected will require substantial financial support from the United States government. The United States is one of the most insured countries in the world and yet, in 2016, almost 50 percent of the economic losses sustained from natural disasters remained unprotected, according to data compiled for Aon Benfield's most recent Annual Global Climate and Catastrophe Report.  Much of the rest of...

Established organizations play an important role in open architecture innovation, by collaborating in a framework which has both standards that enable scalable solutions for clients and the flexibility that encourages entrepreneurial innovation. The report reveals that...

Aon publishes 2017 Risk Maps for Political Risk, Terrorism and Political Violence - 2016 saw a 14 percent increase in the number of terrorist attacks worldwide, up to 4,151 from 3,633 in 2015. Western countries saw a 174 percent increase in terrorist attacks in 2016, up from 35 attacks in 2015 to 96 attacks in 2016. - Oil and gas companies were the target of 41 percent of terrorist attacks on commercial interests in 2016 and the trend has continued in 2017. - 2017 marks the first year in the last four where as many countries experienced a decline in political risk for investors as those experiencing an increase. This suggests a modest improvement in economic resilience after many years of deterioration. - The potential for divergence between the U.S. and Europe around sanctions regimes could create uncertainty for investors in Iran, Russia and even Cuba. A 14 percent worldwide increase in terrorist attacks in 2016 and populist nationalism are creating an increasingly volatile...
