Scheduled demonstrations include WillPLACE, Willis’ groundbreaking data-driven placement tool; PRISM, Willis’ exclusive privacy risk evaluation tool; Willis Global Networks Online Policy Summary and Country Data platform; and Willis’ cutting edge claims and analytics capabilities.

Commenting on Willis’ presence at this year’s RIMS, Joe Plumeri, Chairman and CEO Willis Group Holdings said “This conference comes at a critical time as organizations face new challenges and a new landscape of risk. Today’s risk managers need innovative strategies to effectively navigate the current environment. They are seeking solutions that will help them build resilience for their organizations over the long-term, rather than simply transfer risk in a year-end, year-out transaction.”
