Group Employee Benefit Plans for Multinational Organizations
Expat Financial offers brokerage services for Canadian, the US and other international companies with operations outside of North America which require international group insurance & pension benefits for their expatriate, third-country nationals and key local nationals. Expat group employee benefit plans are available for companies with a minimum of three employees working outside their country of residence. This is a unique and natural extension of our extensive work with clients in employee benefits. We have become a leader in providing international expat group insurance plans to clients around the world.
Expat Financial, which is a division of TFG Global Insurance Solutions Ltd., can even cover some local companies who want the security, portability and quality of an international benefit plan. More and more companies outside of N. America and Europe are looking beyond local insurance companies, where regulations permit. This is especially true in less developed countries.
More and more Canadian and U.S. companies are opening offices in areas such as Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and South America, often in countries with limited or no local benefits coverage. In some nations where local benefits coverage may be available, local currency fluctuations for expatriate employees is a major concern along with the financial stability of the local insurance company. Most expatriate employees want to receive benefits in a major currency, especially if disabled.
A multi-national company with operations in several countries can pool the risk and administration under one plan with companies such as Zurich Life, Aetna Global, Integra Global, Met, BUPA, Allianz, Cigna, Lloyds of London & several more. This is great for companies with highly mobile employees who require portable coverage. Pooling can also lower the premium rates due to economies of scale.
