Willis has an illustrious history. Its origins lie in the early 19th century with the founding in London of three firms, Henry Willis & Co, Faber Brothers, and Dumas & Wylie, the first two of which merged in 1897 to form Willis, Faber & Co. When that firm was joined by Dumas & Wylie, in 1928, the famous name of Willis, Faber & Dumas Limited came into being.

R A Corroon & Co. Inc., was established in New York in 1905. In 1966 it merged with C R Black Jr Corporation. Of a great many subsequent amalgamations the most significant was with Synercon Corporation, of Nashville, in 1976.

In mid-1998 the Group's shareholders accepted an offer from the leveraged buy-out specialists Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. Consequently the Group, which had been publicly quoted since 1976, reverted to being a private company. In 1999, the Group's operations amalgamated under one name Willis Group Limited.
