What Our Partners Are Saying


Jerome Rault

Founder, Romey.co

"Aon recognises the need to partner with small, nimble enterprises like Jerome Rault Media P/L in order to stay dominant and ahead of the curve in the highly regulated insurance marketplace. Few large enterprises are willing to take the time, or allocate the resources, required to support a strategy of growth through partnering with young, dynamic firms the way Aon does."


Eric Frost

CEO, Simple KYC

"Aon has been fantastic at navigating us through the complexities of finding the right insurances for us."
