Founded by Inez and James Cooper in 1992, William Russell has grown from a family-run business to one of the leading insurance providers of international health, life, income protection, and employee benefits cover for expats, their families, and international employers. Operating out of offices in London, Brussels, and Hong Kong, William Russell serves clients in over 160 countries.
As a fully-independent, boutique insurance provider, William Russell has no shareholders or private equity investors, focusing solely on their clients and providing insurance with a personal touch. They have some of the best customer ratings in the business. They believe in named advisors rather than impersonal claims centers, fairness and transparency over hiding behind terms and conditions; and honest communications instead of corporate-speak and insurance jargon.
William Russell's insurance plans are valid worldwide, globally portable across countries, and renewable on an annual basis, so clients aren’t locked into long-term contracts. The plans are insured by AWP Health & Life SA, an insurer in the Allianz group of companies with which William Russell has a close working relationship.
William Russell health plans are designed for expats with varying levels of coverage to match all budgets. They work with medical facilities and professionals across the globe to provide optimal service to their clients.
Securing the ideal life insurance coverage can be challenging, particularly if you’re not a naturalized citizen or permanent resident. With William Russell’s life insurance plans, clients can renew annually with ease.
Financial security is something that anyone can benefit from, regardless of location. William Russell’s income protection plans allow clients to receive a regular income benefit in the event that an injury or illness prevents them from working, thereby protecting their family’s lifestyle.
William Russell’s international employee benefits focus on perks that expat employees truly desire and make it easy to find the best coverage for your unique workforce. Their employee benefits products include group international health insurance (a.k.a IPMI), group international life insurance, and group international income protection insurance.
"I recently purchased coverage from William Russell for my son who is not covered under my husband's employer's plan. Not long after, my son knocked his front tooth out while playing rugby. After much chaos, my broker at Pacific Prime was able to direct me to a recommended dentist and William Russell fully took care of the surgery needed to reattach the tooth. I've heard many nightmares back in the States about insurers not covering dental, even in emergencies. Needless to say, I am very satisfied with the level of coverage from William Russell!"
"My fiance and I recently went to Australia and New Zealand for a long vacation. While in New Zealand, I was food poisoned and felt like I was going to die! The hotel arranged for me to visit a local hospital and I had to stay overnight with an IV drip. I was relieved to learn that my "Essential International Health" plan from William Russell covered the whole ordeal.”
