William Russell is your partner for expat insurance
Our members trust us to deliver straightforward and affordable plans that cover their health, well-being and financial security, wherever they are. Plans that mean you’ll never have to let the unexpected stop you from following your dream. You likely already know that the expat journey follows the road less taken; but it’s a path you need not take alone.
Founded by Inez and James Cooper in 1992, William Russell has grown over the last 29 years from a family-run business to a leading provider of international health, life and income protection insurance. Now we have 75 staff and members in more than 160 countries around the world.
Our health, life, income protection, and personal accident plans are underwritten by AWP Health & Life SA, an Allianz group company registered in France. With a William Russell plan in place, wherever you are in the world, you are backed by an established provider with an insurer from the largest group of financial services companies in the world.
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 are a boutique insurance provider, fully independent, and free from the demands of shareholders or investors. Our only obligation is to you.
That’s the William Russell difference.
Getting the right life insurance cover can be difficult, especially if you are not a permanent resident or naturalised citizen. With our life plans, you can also renew annually without fuss.
Financial security matters, regardless of where you’re living. With our income protection plan, you can receive a regular income benefit if you become unable to work due to an illness or injury. This way, you can protect the lifestyle of your family.
