Form 10-Q for MARSH & MCLENNAN COMPANIES, INC.


7-Nov-2013

Quarterly Report


Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and
Results of Operations
General
Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. and Subsidiaries ("the Company") is a global professional services firm providing advice and solutions principally in the areas of risk, strategy, and human capital. It is the parent company of a number of the world's leading risk experts and specialty consultants, including: Marsh, the insurance broker, intermediary and risk advisor; Guy Carpenter, the risk and reinsurance specialist; Mercer, the provider of HR and related financial advice and services; and Oliver Wyman Group, the management, economic and brand consultancy. With approximately 54,000 employees worldwide and annual revenue of nearly $12 billion, the Company provides analysis, advice and transactional capabilities to clients in over 100 countries. The Company conducts business through two segments:

Risk and Insurance Services includes risk management activities (risk advice, risk transfer and risk control and mitigation solutions) as well as insurance and reinsurance broking and services. We conduct business in this segment through Marsh and Guy Carpenter.

Consulting includes Health, Retirement, Talent and Investments consulting and services, and specialized management and economic consulting services. We conduct business in this segment through Mercer and Oliver Wyman Group.

Effective January 1, 2013, the Corporate Benefits and Association businesses, previously part of Marsh's U.S. Consumer operations, were transferred to Mercer. Also, effective January 1, 2013, Mercer realigned management responsibility for its outsourcing business within its other lines of business. Accordingly, the Company has reclassified prior year segment data and related disclosures contained in this management's discussion and analysis to conform with current year presentation.

The Company completed six acquisitions during the first nine months of 2013. In September 2013, Marsh purchased an additional stake in Insia a.s., an insurance broker operating in the Czech Republic and Slovakia which, when combined with its prior holdings, gave MMC a controlling interest. Insia a.s. was previously accounted for under the equity method. In August 2013, Mercer acquired Global Remuneration Solutions, a market leading compensation consulting firm based in South Africa. In July 2013, Oliver Wyman acquired Corven, a U.K.-based management consultancy firm and Guy Carpenter acquired Smith Group, a specialist disability reinsurance risk manager and consultant based in Maine. In June 2013, Marsh acquired Rehder y Asociados Group, a leading insurance adviser in Peru. The business includes the insurance broker Rehder y Asociados and employee health and benefits specialist, Humanasalud. Marsh also completed the acquisition of Franco & Acra Tecniseguros, an insurance advisor in the Dominican Republic in June 2013.

A reconciliation of segment operating income to total operating income is included in Note 16 to the consolidated financial statements included in Part II Item 8 in this report. The accounting policies used for each segment are the same as those used for the consolidated financial statements. This Management's Discussion & Analysis ("MD&A") contains forward-looking statements as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. See "Information Concerning Forward-Looking Statements" at the outset of this report.
