Who is GRB ?


We are an independent insurance brokerage / agency that has THREE generations of experience in the health, life and special risk insurance industry. That equates to over 75 years combined experience ! We live and breath special risk.

Originally starting out in 1941, The Patterson Agency, Inc. spawned the development of eGlobalHealth Insurers Agency, LLC (www.eGlobalHealth.com) - an online agency developed by 3rd Generation broker / agent, Derek Patterson.

The advent of eGlobalHealth.com to the worldwide web in 2002 and the continued increase in response to worldwide inquires for special risk health, life, disability and travel insurance programs helped in creating GlobalRiskBroker.com, also under the direction of Derek Patterson. As of January 2014, we are also doing business as Global Risk Broker & Associates (GRB).

Nearly two decades later, Global Risk Broker & Associates caters to a truely global scope of clientele ranging from individuals traveling for leisure, to business executives and large corporations, to government contractors in war zones and more. Our range of insurance lines provided spans health, life disability, contingency liability, foreign liability, foreign workers compensation (including DBA , defense base act workers compensation) and so much more...

Another major focus for our firm is that not only do we work directly with clients but we act as a managing general agency or wholesale brokerage. We do actively work with many hundreds of indepenent insurance agents both domestic and foreign. We can help YOU as well ! Enter our Agent/ Broker page to learn how we can help you help your special risk client !

As an independent agency, we strive to offer our clients only the products or services from our partnering insurance providers that meet the clients specific and unique needs -- not the needs or wants of the insurance company. The same continued excellence in customer service that eGlobalHealth Insurers Agency, LLC has brought to the industry is duplicated and improved upon under our new brand at Global Risk Broker & Associates.


Nearly TWO decades of service worldwide!
