Click here to read our special digital supplement, which profiles our winners, contains further insights from the judges and includes additional thought leadership.

We are delighted to announce the winners of the latest Insurance Investment Exchange Awards, the premier event feting excellence in the insurance industry, following our exclusive awards ceremony earlier this week on 18th June. Please find a list of the winners below and photos from the event.

The Insurance Investment Exchange Awards are uniquely independent and unbiased, with all nominations either coming directly from the judges or from the firms themselves. All entries were thoroughly scrutinised by our independent judging panel.

Insurance investment skills and thinking outside the box have never been as critically important as in today’s challenging environment for insurers. The firms, teams and individuals who emerged as winners in 2019 have all demonstrated true excellence and achievement across multiple facets and are deserving winners.

You will be able to read all about the winning entrants and the reasons for their triumphs in a special digital supplement showcasing the winners, which will be available next month. We will also provide an insightful context against which the achievements of the insurance industry and this year’s winners should be judged.

A particular thank you to our judges for giving their precious time to poring through all the entries, and a big thank you also to all the community who have supported us tremendously again this year. We have had some great feedback and more food for thought for 2020.

We look forward to working with you again next year and acknowledging the achievements of the industry once more.
