Willis, via the WRN, supports many academic posts, but these personnel are employed by their research institutions. Academic members and external participants in the WRN are independent of Willis.
The scientific independence of WRN member institutions, their research and personnel from Willis Group is an important principle of the Network's operation.
The Network is coordinated by Willis Group's Global Analytics department and a team of dedicated sector specialists. These personnel manage WRN programmes, projects and outputs between WRN members, Willis personnel and partner organisations worldwide.
Willis Global Analytics provides WRN Members with facilities to integrate and distribute WRN data, expertise and applications across international insurance and reinsurance markets.
