BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Aon P.L.C.

Los Angeles

Age: 35

Connie Liu joined Marsh & McLennan Cos. Inc.’s risk analyst training program upon her graduation from the University of Southern California in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science in business administration and finance emphasis.

Emerging risks in your specialty

I have been a casualty broker for my entire career, pretty much, and with much of the recent events around the world and, really, the increase in terrorism and active-shooting events, we’re really seeing much more interest from our clients on how to appropriately address risk. So as a broker, we’re helping our clients explore different options that are now available in the marketplace, and see how we should be tailoring some of those coverages to make sure we’re appropriately addressing those risks.

Something people don’t know about you

I’m actually quite adventurous. My last international trip was walking the Inca trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, and so we definitely want to go on some adventures while we’re traveling. I also jumped out of a plane once, but I definitely would not do that again.

Hobbies and interests

I really love travel, so travel and eating are definitely my two main hobbies. I became a new mom last year, and so before that, my husband and I made a point to do something different every year, so traveling was very high on our list.

Dream vacation

Greece probably is the No. 1 destination that I haven’t been to. It’s been on my list for many years.

Favorite meal

I love sushi, so probably I’m always willing to do sushi for every meal. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of it.
