Source: Asia Insurance Review | Aug 2016

Some 43 insurers, brokers, risk managers, service providers and industry leaders made it to the prestigious list of the top finalists for the 20th Asia Insurance Industry Awards (AIIA).
   They will now go to Singapore on 24 August for a face-to-face interview with the distinguished panel of Judges who will select the winners in a secret ballot. The winners will only be announced at the Gala Dinner on 11 October, held in conjunction with the 28th EAIC in Macau.
   The Awards, with strictly defined criteria for 15 categories and a transparent selection process helmed by a bench of 30 Judges, saw some 395 entries, with the most coming for the life, innovation and CSR categories. In the first round, the Judges have gone through the entries based on a 1,200 word write-up. The whole process is audited by KPMG. 
   Now in its 20th 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 25 years.
