Former CEO of Marsh & McLennan, Dan Glaser stated “When world is unsettled, demand for our services rises” which perfectly sums up the company’s business. According to the Marsh Global Market Index, global insurance prices have surged for 23 consecutive quarters. As there is a hike in insurance price, so is rise in Marsh’s revenue. 

Till now, Marsh & McLennan Companies’ risk and insurance services revenue has spiked by 11% from the same period the prior year and was also the key to the insurance company’s 8% total revenue growth. 

Berkshire Hathaway closed its remaining position in Marsh & McLennan after generating a return of roughly 60% from the stock. Berkshire Hathaway bought the shares in Q4 2020 and began trimming positions in 2021.

One possible reason for Berkshire Hathaway’s closing position might be its valuation. During Q4, the company traded about 3.5x of its sales and currently, it is valued at more than 4.5x sales, which is its highest valuation during the past decade. 

Marsh has agreed to acquire Honan Insurance Group on 21 August 2023 for undisclosed terms. The deal is expected to close by the end of 2023 but is subject to regulatory approval.

Will MMC Stock Price Break All-Time High?  

The stock price has propelled above 20, 50, 100, and 200-day exponential moving averages, indicating bullish momentum. The 20-day EMA has been acting as a support for the price. However, the Chaikin money flow (CMF) score has dropped below the 0 mark and stands at -0.16, suggesting weakness in the market. 

CMF is showing divergence with the price action as the stock price is highly bullish. The relative strength index stands at 56.50, implying bullish momentum. The Bollinger bands have also slightly expanded suggesting a rise in volatility. 


According to Marsh’s global insurance market index, global commercial insurance prices rose 3% in the second quarter and 4% in the previous quarter which shows growth in the insurance sector that will positively affect Marsh & McLennan’s business.
