Risk Benefit Solutions (RBS) has joined the Worldwide Insurance Network Group (WING), a global panel of independent insurance brokers. Through this partnership, RBS – an independent financial services advisory firm, operating nationally and in certain regions in Africa – will automatically advance its expertise to a global stage.

RBS has joined a network of 75 members, who collectively employ over 10 500 staff in approximately 600 offices across 58 countries worldwide. This partnership will enable RBS to expand its international reach and global expertise in providing co-ordinated, integrated insurance and risk management solutions to businesses operating on a global stage.

In order to partner with WING, brokerages undergo a demanding selection process to guarantee suitability to the brand. Chairman of WING, Martin Wicks, says: “RBS met our rigorous selection criteria, which demands the highest service quality, and the ability to deliver a wide range of market-leading insurance products. As such, the company will be a first-class addition to the panel.”

Annelie Smith, Corporate Executive at RBS, says that RBS is delighted to join the prestigious WING. “We are excited about the opportunities that being part of such a network will offer. RBS has a culture of innovation, problem-solving and entrepreneurship – values that the WING network shares.”

WING offers a solution to global businesses partnering with various brokers, and ensures consistency of cover and support for business in addressing local compliance and regulatory issues.
