Not disingenuous in the slightest

Compare AJG to an AIG or an Aviva and they'd be laughed at

The disingenuousness is highlighted for you. I can't think of too many brokers with a larger global presence so I looked it up - AJG were the worlds 4th Largest in 2016. Neither of the companies you list is a brokerage business.

Im fully aware of AJGs size and scope. They tried to hire me at one point

BUT if you want to work in insurance you want to be away from the MGA segment

AJG is a broker and MGA.

Is there anyone who hasn't tried to hire you Russell - and what is the relevance of that anyway? Premiership rugby have lost a significantly high profile title sponsor for one with a substantially lower profile. That is obviously a significant story and a blow to the premiership and almost definitely is accompanied by a significant loss in income. This does not surprise or disappoint any of us :lol: I just don't understand why you feel the need to call one of the major global players in their industry sector small-time but I'm sure you have your reasons.

FDR decide not to accept majority buy-out offer. Prefer to continue seeking minority investment.

Cash-strapped Premiership clubs decide £275 million takeover 'not the preferred option'


PREMIERSHIP CHAIRMAN IAN Ritchie says allowing a takeover of English rugby’s top tier is “not the preferred option”, but he admitted the cash-strapped league is looking for investment.

Former Formula One owners CVC Capital Partners are believed to have expressed interest in buying a £275 million (€309 million) controlling stake in the Premiership.

England’s leading clubs are struggling financially, with Worcester losing £8 million and Harlequins £6 million in the past accounting year, while Exeter were the only Premiership club to make a profit.

Against that uncertain backdrop, Premiership Rugby voted unanimously on Tuesday to listen to all new investment offers and chief executive Mark McCafferty expects quick movement on a potential deal.

But England’s top teams do not want to sell on a majority stake in the Premiership and will attempt to retain overall control of the product.

“We had a very positive board discussion and considered a range of alternatives to accelerate investment in the club game,” Premiership Rugby chairman Ritchie said.

“The board was unanimous on how to proceed and agreed that selling a majority stake was not the preferred option.

“We shall now develop these options further with our advisors and the interested parties ahead of the next board meeting.”

“This is all about how do we engage further in growing from a strong base into something that develops even further?

“But again, control is something that by and large we would want to keep within the clubs.”

CVC Capital Partners reportedly bid for a 51% stake in Premiership Rugby.

The Premiership clubs would stand to receive a multi-million pound windfall from any investment deal, which would help offset financial losses surrounding increasing revenues including player wage inflation.

“Ian (Ritchie) and I have a good mandate from today about what the shareholders want to see. So that’s given us exactly the clarity we want,” McCafferty added.

Guardian carrying the story including comments from the IRB that says Premier Rugby Limited and their attitude to player welfare is now an issue to the global game. They've set up a working group to take action against them
