  • Risk management segment – US$15.5 million, down from US$17.6 million
  • Corporate segment – Loss of US$32.1 million, from previous loss of US$21.4 million

On an adjusted basis, however, AJG’s total net earnings for the quarter stood at US$134.6 million, an increase from US$123.1 million.

Commenting on the results, AJG chairman, president, and chief executive J. Patrick Gallagher, Jr. stated: “We delivered another outstanding quarter of operating performance and are excited about the remainder of 2019.

“During the second quarter, we posted excellent total revenue growth, terrific organic revenue growth, strong margins and we completed 13 brokerage mergers with US$195 million of annualised revenue.”
