Aon Broker David Fraser Recognized as a 2019 International Power Broker
David Fraser, Senior Vice President, Aon
David Fraser’s multinational clients rave about his superior service. Fraser and his team helped to secure an Australian private equity firm’s insurance coverage throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand, said the firm’s general manager of risk and insurance.
Despite average rate increases of 25 to 30 percent in the Australian market, through Fraser’s collaborative leadership of the teams across Australia and Europe, the Aon team managed to secure a 15 percent reduction, saving around $1 million in premiums — “unheard of in the current market,” the client said.
“David is an amazing guy — he’s super-committed, very well connected and respected, and above all, I trust him as a friend,” the client said. “He is always looking to put himself in our shoes and always puts our interests first. I have worked with some world-class brokers over the years, but David is one of the best in the business.”
Fraser is “a full-service broker,” assisting another client’s insurance needs in Europe, Asia and the U.S. “He knows insurance and more importantly, he understands people and is a great problem-solver,” the client said. “David has the rare ability to keep perspective and a sense of humor while addressing the ‘issue of the day,’ which is invaluable — and, in my experience, impossible to teach.
“Insurance can be taught and learned — the people skills to wield that knowledge and use it, not so much,” the client said. “David has both.”
