February 12, 2019

The 2019 multinational pooling network matrix provides a complete listing of the eight key global benefits networks, affiliated insurers and offshore capabilities.

Global employers continue to look for the most effective financing strategies for their benefits programs. Multinational pooling, employee benefits captives and global underwriting solutions offer untapped potential for multinational companies to save money on their insurable benefits around the world. By better leveraging your global purchasing power through these innovative arrangements, you can maximize cost savings for employee benefit programs and optimize nonfinancial benefits, such as improved service and underwriting.

Willis Towers Watson's 2019 global benefits financing matrix provides a complete listing of the eight global benefits networks, and their affiliated insurers across 200 countries and the offshore (third-country national or expat) capabilities for each. For each country, we have listed only insurers that can provide local admitted policies and products. Poolable coverages — life, accident, disability, medical and pension — are shown in brackets for each insurer.

As a specialist in this field, Willis Towers Watson looks forward to helping you maximize cost savings via your pooling and captive arrangements. We can assist clients in all elements of benefits financing arrangements, including:

  • Multinational pooling, captive global underwriting arrangements feasibility assessment and implementation
  • Global benefit funding strategy development
  • Performance assessments of current  global benefits financing arrangements and local funding alternatives
  • Ongoing management of pooling or captive arrangements — an area where many companies are looking for external help
  • Participation in our exclusive Captive User Group meetings, which have been running successfully for nearly two decades, as well as other round-table discussions on benefits financing subjects
  • Developing the right benefits financing solution for your organization

We will continue to monitor changes in the eight global benefits networks and be available to update you on any major changes that occur across the global insurance provider market.
