Our Business Principles and Practices

The Marsh Namibia Terms of Engagement (ToE) (Version 1, June 2013) is based on the Marsh UK TOE, suitably modified to comply with Namibian legal and compliance requirements.

The TOE is introduced by a short Letter of Engagement (LoE) addressing key provisions such as services, remuneration, term/termination and limitation on liability.
