Proposed Aon-WTW merger about being ‘better,’ not ‘bigger’
MARCH 14, 2020
When Aon plc and Willis Towers Watson recently announced a mega-merger of an all-stock transaction with an equity value of approximately $30 billion, the merger, among other things, continued an ongoing HR consulting-consolidation trend. About a year ago, talks regarding a potential marriage between Aon and WTW fell apart. Primarily, the new Aon will focus on the areas of risk, retirement and health, according to the merger announcement.
