Overall Insurance Rating




Since 1992, William Russell plans are backed-up by Allianz. Rated at an extremely strong AAA-, the Allianz brand value reached almost €39 billion.

A computerized pricing allows clients to mix and match level of cover, deductibles and region for each family member. You can consult us for quote simulations.
