CHICAGO, Dec 9, 2013 – Aon plc (NYSE:AON), the leading global provider of risk management and human resource consulting and outsourcing, announced today that it acquired the assets of Minneapolis-based Stratford 360, a leading provider of customized executive and physician supplemental benefit and deferred compensation plan design, consulting and administrative services.

Tom Fitzgerald, CEO of Aon Risk Solutions’ U.S. Retail operations added, “We strive to bring clients the best, most thoughtful solutions that help them achieve their goals. Stratford 360 is the undisputed leader when it comes to physician and executive disability, life insurance and non-qualified retirement plans. Adding these capabilities to Aon’s unmatched expertise in benefits design and consulting adds another dimension to how we are able to empower results for clients.”

“Founded 40 years ago in 1973, Stratford 360 has a long-standing reputation for service excellence and thought leadership,” said Drew Erra, Stratford 360 executive vice president and principal.  “We are excited to bring our high-quality work and innovative solutions to the Aon family and their clients.”
