Here is what Polen International Growth Fund has to say about Aon plc (NYSE:AON) in its Q1 2022 investor letter:

"A world-leading insurance brokerage Aon has continued to execute well and has exhibited attractive growth through the pandemic. The Ireland-based company tends to benefit from inflation through a data-centric approach to selling and distributing insurance solutions on a recurring basis. By scouring policy data flows across its business, Aon offers insights that intelligently match buyers and sellers of protection. As an asset- light and cash-generative business Aon has the ability to return capital to shareholders regularly. In the fourth quarter alone, it repurchased more than 4% of shares outstanding. Over the last decade, the company has repurchased a third of all shares outstanding."
