About the Awards

In 2022, the Awards provide a platform for us to recognise how our industry has continued to support the customer, community, and its people, and the extraordinary achievements that have helped our industry grow and flourish.

With submissions across 15 categories, the Awards provide an opportunity for a wide range of industry sectors to be represented and recognised as the insurance ecosystem grows.

This year sees the introduction of four new categories:

  • Excellence in Environmental, Social and Governance Change — this award recognises an outstanding organisation who deals with how environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues affect its business's strategies and practices.
  • General Insurance Claims Team of the Year — this award recognises a claims team that has demonstrated excellent technical skills, strong claims results and outstanding customer service during 2021
  • Insurtech Start-up of the Year - this award recognises an innovative technology company that enhances, extends or replaces a traditional approach to servicing insurance customers’ needs. 
  • Authorised Representative Network of the Year - this award recognises an outstanding broking company that generates 80% or more of their premium income from an Authorised Representative (AR) model and shows exceptional service for their AR's and customers.

The Awards are decided by an esteemed panel of industry Judges who read and score each submission individually and vote under the supervision of an independent auditor.

For further information please contact Kelly Phypers, Event Manager.
