22nd Asia Insurance Industry Awards 2018 -
47 Finalists Named

Some 47 insurers, brokers, risk managers, service providers and industry leaders made it to the list of the top finalists for the 22nd Asia Insurance Industry Awards (AIIA). They will now head to Singapore on 4th 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 gala dinner on 29th October, held in conjunction with the 15th SIRC.

The Awards, with strictly defined criteria for each category and a transparent selection process helmed by a bench of 33 judges, saw over 800 entries. The Young Leader, Woman Leader, InsurTech, Innovation and Technology Initiative categories saw the most amount of entries. 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 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.
