Asia Industry Awards - 19th Asia Insurance Industry Awards Judging - Finalists put in the hot seat

Source: Asia Insurance Review | Oct 2015

Finalists of the Asia Insurance Industry Awards (AIIA) met the judges for a face-to-face interview in the final round of judging to determine the winners of each category. 
   Forty-seven out of a total of 428 entries had been shortlisted as prestigious final contenders and for the interview, the finalists were represented by a member of their senior management team.
   Now in its 19th year, the AIIA has become a much sought-after mark of excellence and peer group endorsement for insurance players and professionals in the market, with the very backbone of the Awards being the 29 judges drawn from a cross-section of industry leaders, regulators and experts. 
   The winners will be announced at a gala dinner to be held in conjunction with the Singapore International Reinsurance Conference on 3 November 2015.
