Aon to relocate HQ to London

Aon is to become the first ever US S&P 500 company to become domiciled in the UK after the insurance broker unveiled plans to shift its headquarters from Chicago to London.

The move by Aon – which employs 59,000 people globally and has a market capitalisation of $15bn – gives a boost to London’s status as a global financial centre. HSBC is among the UK-based institutions to signal it might move its headquarters overseas given the costs of regulation.

Aon employs 5,000 people in the UK and plans to lease several floors of the Leadenhall Building development, nicknamed the “Cheesegrater”, currently under construction in the City.

Mark Hoban, financial secretary to the Treasury, said Aon’s decision was “a strong endorsement of London and the UK”.

S&P Indices said: “As far as we can determine, there has never been another UK domiciled company in the S&P 500.”

Great news to see it finally rising above ground.

What's the name of that very old building next to the construction site?
