The Willis Research Network (WRN) is an award winning collaboration between academia, finance and insurance industries. Created by Willis Re, the WRN integrates public science with re/insurance communities to enhance our collective ability to understand, evaluate and manage extreme natural catastrophes and to provide credible scientific expertise to improve risk decision making across the industry.

The WRN is currently working on projects across more than fifty science institutions worldwide, working with our clients and partners to confront the full spectrum of risk modelling challenges. Our industry continues to evolve and the pace of improvement in understanding is astounding. However, key risk management issues are still not fully understood and no single institution has the resources or breadth of knowledge to answer these matters. The challenges of understanding risk and resilience are still best met working in partnerships and embracing the skills of people across the globe. The WRN continues to build on the strength of its partnerships, delivering and incorporating solutions into models, methodologies and transactions to improve the market’s understanding, resilience and coverage of risk.

The WRN Research Hubs drive a number of research programmes which in turn manage several WRN research projects, producing academic and industrial research outputs. Outputs include data, models, applications, peer-reviewed journal articles, financial instruments and conferences. Alongside the longer term research programs, we continue to identify projects with tangible outputs for our clients within shorter frame deliverables, allowing us to deliver solutions when they are needed.
