WTW joins RUSI programme

Willis Towers Watson has joined forces with the Royal United Services Institute to support its Modern Deterrence Programme, which investigates the changing threat to Western societies. The Willis Research Network will engage with the four-year long RUSI Programme to support a platform and research hub for governments, the private sector and civic organisations to investigate modern deterrence.

RUSI’s access to policymakers and senior personnel across the security domain in Europe will help build a centre of excellence where participants can benefit from research and the sharing of best practice; and will in turn support WTW’s advisory services.

Head of corporate risk and broking for GB at Willis Towers Watson, Alastair Swift said “Our clients increasingly see geopolitical instability as a key risk driver for business. There are immediate synergies between the two organisations, particularly on the need to better understand geopolitical drivers of risk, and the focus on actionable recommendations to increase resilience. By engaging with RUSI to understand global volatility, leveraging the rest of our Willis Research Network’s top class data and analytics, and combining this with our internal expertise, we are able to provide bespoke geopolitical risk mitigation strategies for our clients.”

Elisabeth Braw, associate fellow, Modern Deterrence Military Sciences, added: “We are very pleased that Willis Towers Watson is becoming involved with RUSI’s Modern Deterrence project as an early supporter. [Its] engagement is an exemplary illustration of the fact that today national security involves not just armed forces and governments but the private sector as well.”
