Here is what Vltava Fund has to say about Willis Towers Watson Public Limited Company  in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

“There were two new additions to the portfolio last year – (including) shares of the insurance broker Willis Towers Watson. I mentioned both purchases already in the previous newsletter to shareholders. At first sight, these were only minor changes. There were many more transactions in the portfolio over the past year, however. Most purchases were directed to shares we have already held in the portfolio. We have been purchasing virtually all the stocks we hold, many of them repeatedly. While we are by no means opposed to anything new and always are looking for new investment opportunities, we generally tend to gravitate to what we already have in the portfolio, to what we know well, and moreover what we see is working out well.”
