Marsh has opened a new insurance broking office in Liverpool, UK to expand its operations in the country.

The new office will be led by the company’s senior executive Phil Angus, who joins from the Manchester office.

Angus will be supported in his role by a team of insurance and risk experts, including client executives, project analysts and claims consultants, as well as North West chairman John Penwill.

Marsh, part of the Marsh & McLennan group of companies, offers insurance broking and risk advisory services to organisations across the North West of England.

Angus said that Marsh & McLennan Companies has a long-standing presence in Liverpool and the company has ambitious growth plans for the North West of England.

"The formation of Marsh’s dedicated insurance and risk management unit brings together expertise and resources to help local businesses lower costs, manage risk, protect their future and thrive," Angus said.
