A Historic Meeting
In 1923, Carpenter met with cotton insurance brokers Henry W. Marsh and Donald R. McLennan during a transatlantic crossing. Guy Carpenter & Company would become part of Marsh McLennan and take the nascent science of analytics far beyond cotton, laying a foundation of quantitative precision that continues to this day. This partnership would also give Guy Carpenter clients the advantage of being able to tap into the financial strengths of the Marsh McLennan enterprise.
The insight that data—the more, the better—could help clients anticipate perils and measure risks put Guy Carpenter on a trajectory that is still transforming the industry.
Today, Guy Carpenter is a leader in the reinsurance broking industry by bringing together unmatched data insights with bespoke solutions to help clients turn risk into profitable growth.
