“Very professionally researched and refreshing report on iPMI. Took a while to digest it all at over 1000 pages in length. An excellent resource for the team and new hires to keep coming back to. Look forward to next year’s edition” iPMI Insurer CEO.

“Best report we have ever purchased on international private medical insurance. Although we have been in the market a while now, there is a lot in here, we simply did not know, and hadn’t considered.” iPMI Broker Director.
