deal jigsaw pieces

Aon’s combination with Willis Towers Watson (WTW) will be closely examined by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), according to analysts.

It was revealed yesterday (9 March) that Aon is set to buy WTW for nearly $30bn (£22.9bn) in an all-stock transaction which values the combined business at approximately $80bn.

The move will see Aon become the largest global insurance broker when the deal completes in the first half of 2021.
