The established, respected global insurance specialist

Our story

Founded by Inez and James Cooper, William Russell has grown over the last 25 years from a family-run business to a leading supplier of international life, health and income cover. What sets us apart is our personal touch. We believe in named advisers not impersonal call centres, and straight, honest communication rather than pages of small print. We may have grown to become a big company but we’re still small enough to care.

It’s the William Russell difference.


William Russell Today

From our modest beginnings, we now have customers in over 160 countries. William Russell Limited arranges and administers global Health Cover, global Income Protection and Accident Benefit insurance plans that are underwritten by AWP Health & Life SA, an Allianz group company registered in France, and Griffin Underwriting Limited.

Wherever you are in the world, you are safe.

Why William Russell?

There are plenty of reasons why we’re a leader in international health, life and income cover:

  • We’re here to help you out, not catch you out
  • The destination for international citizens
  • Steady support in a changing world
  • Beating cancer shouldn’t mean fighting paperwork
