UK – Finland is one of the three new countries included in the consultancy network operated by International Benefits Network (IBN), a worldwide grouping for employee benefits services. Three new member firms have been added to give greater international presence.

In addition to Finland, the new membership adds Australia and Brazil to the roster of firms in the consultancy networking arrangement.

The new firms are AEI Financial Services Group based in St Leonards in New South Wales, Adams & Porter Sociedad de Corregta de Seguros in Sao Paulo, and Finib Oy in Helsinki.

“IBN’s expanded presence in these three countries allows us to serve our clients better in these regions,” said Henk Lunstroo, recently appointed chairman of IBN, who is manager of employee benefits for Meeus Assurantien Midden in Ammersfoort.

IBN has also announced that HSBC Actuaries and Consultants in the UK and Palmer & Cay Consulting Group, based in Virginia have been named as executive members of the network.

The network has now some 36 member firms, based in around 27 different countries.
