The Business

Corporate Risk and Broking (CRB)

The clients of this segment of WTW consist of non-insurance corporations. We advise these companies on all aspects of risk management and insurance purchase.


Our clients rely on us to craft strategies to quantify, mitigate, and transfer risk, taking advantage of our specialist industry experience and unparalleled market know-how. The result is a new way of embracing risk that drives superior results. 

Strategic Risk Consulting is a global business within CRB that provides risk strategy advice on a consulting basis to large accounts in the major industries such as energy, aviation, healthcare and financial services. We use data, analytics and technology together with the market and specialist knowledge of our broking teams to optimize the risk transfer strategy of our clients.
