Worldwide Broker Network (WBN) The Worldwide Broker Network is the world’s largest organization of privately held insurance brokers. Partner firms are represented in Europe, North America, South and Central America, Africa, the Far East and Australia. Founded in 1989 as the Independent Broker Network, WBN has evolved into an integrated worldwide insurance services network. Based in London, the Worldwide Broker Network comprises over 4,000 employees and has representation in more than 40 countries. On the basis of revenues, the network partners as a group would comprise the 3rd largest insurance broker in the world.

WGA is constantly expanding the carefully selected group of brokers and consultants that we have worked with over the years in various countries where our customers have employees. The firms and individuals have been selected based on their ability to provide the highest quality of services and their ability to understand the unique needs of the high technology & life sciences industries.

Our strong international network allows WGA to work with our clients to ensure that the most appropriate local representation is utilized. We also have the flexibility to work with existing brokers or carriers, so as not to disrupt relationships that are already working well for our clients.
