The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many of us. And, while the pandemic is first and foremost a human tragedy, we are also deeply concerned about its impact on our economy. The stakes – for businesses and organizations, their employees, and the U.S. economy – are high. That’s why I’ve written to Congress and the Administrationto offer Marsh’s assistance in creating a public-private pandemic risk solution that can accelerate our economic recovery and provide much-needed protection against future pandemic risks.
We believe that a pandemic risk insurance program is essential for our clients. It can:
Facilitate access to capital from both lenders and equity markets that will require assurance against future pandemic risks.
Establish a viable insurance market – with sufficient and affordable capacity – for pandemic risk.
Create greater certainty for both businesses and employees if we face a recurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic or during a future pandemic.
Enhance the resilience of the US economy and its ability to bounce back following a future pandemic.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we remain committed to being there for clients by helping you manage current impacts to your organization and by advocating for solutions to help mitigate future risks.
We will continue to update you on the latest insurance information on our Pandemic Risk Hub. If you would like to speak with Marsh’s specialists, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your business, and please stay safe and healthy.
