Marsh & McLennan, the world's largest insurance broker, said on Thursday it will exit all of its businesses in Russia.
"We intend to transfer ownership of our Russian businesses to local management, who will operate independently in the Russian market," Chief Executive Officer Dan Glaser said in a statement.
The move comes as operating in Moscow has been increasingly difficult for Western financial institutions amid international sanctions against Russia.
