22nd Asia Insurance Industry Awards 2018 - 47 Finalists named

| 23 Jul 2018

A total of 47 insurers, brokers, risk managers, service providers and industry leaders have made it to the list of the top finalists for the 22nd Asia Insurance Industry Awards (AIIA).

They will be in Singapore on 4 September for a face-to-face interview with the distinguished panel of judges who will then select the winners in a secret ballot. The winners will only be announced at the AIIA gala dinner on 29 October, held in conjunction with the 15th Singapore International Reinsurance Conference.

The Awards, with strictly defined criteria for each category and a transparent selection process helmed by a bench of 33 judges, attracted over 800 entries this year. The Young Leader, Woman Leader, InsurTech, Innovation and Technology Initiative categories saw the most number of entries. In the first round of determination, the judges read a 1,200-word write-up that accompanied each entry. The whole process is audited by KPMG.

Now in its 22nd year, the AIIA has become a much sought-after mark of excellence and peer group endorsement for insurance players and professionals in the market.

The Awards have been hosted annually since 1997 by Asia Insurance Review, the voice of the insurance industry of Asia for the past 27 years.

This year, two categories – Service Provider and Reinsurance Broker – have been dropped due to an insufficient number of entries.
