Why Do The Leading Independent Brokers Want To Join Worldwide Broker Network (WBN)?
Direct Global Relationships
WBN Semi-Annual Owner’s Conferences build Global knowledge, strengthen personal relationships, improve communication and Member-to-Member confidence. WBN Members have the opportunity to benchmark and compare and discuss international issues and strategies.
The WBN is the only fully integrated global independent insurance brokerage network, whose Member firms include both Property & Casualty and Employee Benefits specialties.
The WBN has a long history of growth, global cooperation, and service. Founded in 1989, the network has grown steadily, carefully selecting professional firms to meet client demand.
The WBN is comprised of more than 80 member firms in almost 90 countries. Clients can be serviced in over 500 offices worldwide.
WBN Brokers and clients are connected by WBNet-- a proprietary international technology system which gives WBN Brokers, their clients, and all interested parties 24/7 communication, project management, and access to all relevant client information worldwide. The solution allows a WBN Member to project themselves internationally, effectively managing an insured’s international projects.
The WBN invests in resources to help Members keep up-to-date on Global information, country developments, regulatory issues, and Global opportunities.
WBN invests in resources that create opportunities for members to strengthen their own individual brand. Members can also add the WBN brand to reinforce their Global reputation.
WBN Members are visited and reviewed prior to being invited to into membership. Thereafter, 360 Degree Evaluations by Member firms and WBN Home Office oversight ensures continued quality of service.
Outstanding Global Value
Membership in the WBN is far more cost-effective than an individual firm building their own global presence. It solves the expensive dilemma a firm faces when the amount of international business can not sustain a full office of in-country specialists.
