March 28, 2018

This month, Marsh revealed that it has joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), the world's largest open source blockchain initiative with more than 400 member companies. The EEA seeks to create open industry standards and frameworks for blockchain applications based on the core Ethereum platform.

Marsh is the first insurance broker to be part of the EEA, which includes some of the world's leading organizations in technology, financial services, health care, energy, manufacturing, and a number of fast-growing startups. As a member of the EEA, Marsh will play an active role in the Insurance Working Group and the Digital Identity Working Group, collaborating with the alliance members in leading and driving the adoption of blockchain applications.

"We see the potential of blockchain technology as having a game-changing impact on the risk management and insurance industry—one that enables the creation of new business models, products, and platforms that better serve our clients in the new economy," said Sastry Durvasula, chief digital officer and chief data & analytics officer at Marsh. "By joining the EEA, we will be able to collaborate with other members to explore new solutions and disruptive use cases, while participating in the evolution of Ethereum into enterprise-grade blockchain technology."

Marsh also recently joined The Institutes RiskBlock™ Alliance, a risk management and insurance industry enterprise-level blockchain consortium that seeks to leverage the blockchain to lower industry transaction costs while increasing the speed and security of data transfers among customers, industry stakeholders, and third parties.
