GEM Benefits is pleased to announce a partnership with the Winch Group in Burlington Ontario.

Throughout our 24-year history, GEM Benefits has always strived to bring best of class service and products to our clients.  We have been doing this independently – not tied to any insurer, bank or provider.  In order to expand capacity while remaining independent and client focused, we have chosen to consolidate with the Winch Group of Burlington Ontario.

Both GEM and the Winch Group share the common core values of independence and an enduring commitment to client satisfaction.

Did I mention that you will now benefit from more purchasing ‘clout’?  The Winch Group has grown to one of the largest Employee Benefit Consulting Firms in Ontario with offices located in Burlington, Cambridge (BGM Financial), Halifax (Archway Insurance) and St. Catharines (Synergy Benefits).

They are also regarded as leaders in the Pension and Group Capital Accumulation plan market.

With the Winch Group, comes affiliation with the Benefit Alliance Group giving greater economies of scale and access to wider preferred provider networks for all of our clients, regardless of insurer or carrier.

You can now access the collective intelligence and buying power of a national network of industry experts, share benefit trends and insights and leverage our in-depth knowledge of the marketplace to provide our clients with the best solutions.

Hey! This is the best of all worlds:

  1. The GEM Benefits office will remain in Woodstock where you will continue to receive the same expert advice, service and care from Rob Van De Cappelle, Miranda Haverkamp and Rasa Lannoo.
  2. We are ‘back-stopped’ by the specific expertise and buying power of a national entity.

Every day, in every way my team and I will continue to earn your business and respect.

With gratitude,

Rasa Lannoo, CEO and Lead Consultant
