“While the conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues to have a terrible humanitarian impact and is affecting people and businesses beyond regional borders, in the future rising competition for national supremacy over soil, sea and space will also fuel global geopolitical tensions,” Perry said. “With our expanding global footprint and deep pool of expertise, Marsh Specialty’s political risk and structured credit team is well placed to support our clients in building greater resilience into their growth strategies and enabling them to continue to thrive.”
