108. AON corporation in WTC2 lost 170. Also Risk. #2 competitor of Marsh

Aon Corporation is a leading provider of risk management services, insurance and reinsurance brokerage, human capital and management consulting, and specialty insurance underwriting. It was created in 1982, when the Ryan Insurance Group merged with Combined International Corporation. (Aon is the Gaelic term for "oneness".) Combined International Corporation was founded by W. Clement Stone in the late-1920s, and Ryan Insurance Group was founded by Patrick Ryan in the 1960s.

The company employs approximately 47,000 professionals in its 500 offices in more than 120 countries. Backed by broad resources, industry knowledge and technical expertise, Aon professionals help a wide range of clients develop effective risk management and workforce productivity solutions. Aon is the world's largest reinsurance broker, largest captive insurance company manager, second largest insurance brokerage (after Marsh & McLennan); and third largest employee benefits consultant.

Its New York offices were in the 99th and 100th floors of the south tower of the World Trade Center at the time of the 2001 terrorist attack. As a result, Aon lost more than 170 employees.
