SANTIAGO, June 28, 2023 - Aon plc (NYSE: AON), a leading global professional services firm, today announced the expansion of the firm’s Health Solutions capabilities in Chile with the acquisition of Benefits (Benefits Corredores de Seguros Ltda), an employee benefits consulting company, including the company’s brokerage and consulting businesses. The acquisition significantly expands Aon’s presence in Chile and the services currently available to the firm’s local clients.
“In the current macroeconomic environment, a perfect storm has developed as employee needs and expectations for employee benefits continue to expand amid a competitive talent market,” said Franco Di Lucca, head of South Cone at Aon. “At the same time, business leaders are trying to manage rising benefit costs. The acquisition of Benefits advances Aon’s focus on helping clients manage health care costs and investments in employee wellbeing and benefits as well as enabling them to use bespoke and locally relevant solutions to make better decisions for their employees and business. It also reinforces our firm’s commitment in investing in Chile and the relevance of this market to our Latin America operations."
Throughout the last 14 years, Benefits has built a long track record of experience advising clients, a highly talented team, and a wide range of service offerings for small, medium and large companies.
“Joining Aon and leveraging the firm’s global market presence and longstanding industry relationships can take us to the next level in terms of reach and delivery, as we will work together to design a unique benefits ecosystem for our clients, built to deliver the best outcomes to protect and grow their businesses,” said Cristián Urzúa, managing director at Benefits.
