By Shiri Gupta

Below are the three companies in the Insurance Brokers industry with the lowest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry.

Marsh & McLennan follows with a a P/E ratio of 21.48, and AON rounds out the bottom five with a a P/E ratio of 21.83.
