Aon Broker Natalie Marquess Recognized as a 2022 Pharmaceuticals Power Broker
Natalie Marquess, Vice President, Aon
As a life sciences liability insurance broker, Natalie Marquess works to protect the bottom line for the companies she supports. She strives to utilize the trusted advisor model approach.
Recently, Marquess was engaged by her client to help support a clinical trial stage life sciences/biotechnology company headquartered in China through a successful U.S. IPO process.
With her team, Marquess developed a comprehensive and efficient approach to gain the attention of interested program underwriters across the globe. Marquess and her team helped support the worldwide marketing effort to secure the most comprehensive D&O liability insurance program possible — from a coverage as well as a pricing point of view.
Eric Hall, partner at FLD Partners, said Marquess was essential in his client getting D&O coverage.
“This was not an easy task, since underwriters were not willing to quote on D&O coverage for life sciences companies,” Hall said.
“But Natalie was instrumental in getting several terms, conditions and exclusions removed and improved the coverage for our directors and officers. She understands the D&O needs for companies that are going public without any revenue and lots of R&D and clinical trial costs. She also understands the clinical trial process and the coverage needs for the multiple trials. She is an effective advocate for the clients with underwriters and is able to get coverage for reasonable terms where other brokers are not.”
