Anders Soeborg, Head of Risk Management at ISS, said: “Our more than 200,000 customers globally are not only outsourcing their services to us.

In this respect we see the recent global partnership with Aon as a very important step on our way to operational risk excellence to the benefit of ISS and our customers.”
Chris Naylor, client director at Aon, added: “We’re delighted that ISS were impressed with our truly global approach and experience of dealing with global complexities.
