“It is important for Zurich to attend the 2nd Global Benefits because a key strategy for Zurich’s business segment Global Life is assisting multinational corporations and organizations meet their global employee benefit needs through its Corporate Life & Pensions unit. This conference will help us promote that knowledge,” stated Elizabeth K.

The conference provides a showcase for these capabilities,” she added.
“Zurich would like to increase awareness of Zurich’ business segment Global Life as a global employee benefits provider, meet customers and prospects and introduce our U.S.-based Corporate Life & Pensions team as well as offer ourselves as a conduit into the multitude of insurance products, both life and non-life that Zurich has available,” Mrs. Woods stated.
