Mattioli Woods is attending the Worldwide Broker Network (WBN) in Singapore from 19-22 October, which will bring more than 200 members, executives from more than a dozen international and regional insurers, and clients together to share best practices in the sales and servicing of cross-border multinational insurance and employee benefits programs.
The WBN is the largest, fully integrated international network of independent Insurance Brokers and Employee Benefits Consultants and 4th-largest among all broker networks. Find out more here. Founded in 1989 in Europe by 9 firms, the strategic alliance today comprises 108 market-leading independent firms in over 100 countries on 6 continents, providing clients with cross-border expertise and outstanding service wherever they do business in the world. With more than $5 billion in combined annual revenues, WBN has become an important part of the industry’s distribution network.
Alan Fergusson, Employee Benefits Director, commented:
“Mattioli Woods has been a member of the WBN for a number of years and we have been lucky enough to work with many of our global partners placing business from the UK for our own clients, and dealing with inward referrals from other countries. We have recently strengthened our international capability and will continue to do so, and sponsoring the REBA Global HR director’s forum earlier this year also raised our own and networks profile. We look forward to another fruitful conference.”
Providing suitable benefits for internationally-based staff often presents HR and Benefit Managers with a variety of difficult and complex situations, including local regulation and legal requirements, ensuring benefits match expatriate employee expectations and language, currency and cultural complications.
Mattioli Woods can assist with global solutions and its dedicated team has expertise in advising clients on international benefits, utilising a wide spectrum of innovative structures to ensure that the benefits provided and the contributions/premiums paid match both employer and employee expectations and maximise return on investment.
