Enter the London Market Awards
Celebrate success in the London market
The tough conditions facing the London market show little sign of abating. Fierce competition, evolving distribution trends and the growth of other international hubs weigh heavy on the market.
The pressure on firms to be more efficient, to be more innovative and to find new ways to demonstrate their value and relevance has never been greater.
At the same time, the impact of last year’s devastating hurricanes and wildfires is still being felt. Yet these catastrophes provided an opportunity for the insurance industry to demonstrate what it is here to do: to pay claims.
And it is in the face of such events that the industry shows its expertise, entrepreneurial flair and creativity — characteristics that the London Market Awards celebrate.
It is in these current challenging market conditions where the most resilient and innovative companies and teams stand out. These challenges demand every ounce of tenacity, skill and creative thinking to prevail.
So, it is with great pleasure that Insurance Day opens the entry process for this year’s annual London Market Awards, which recognise the very best in insurance.
Last year’s winners included former Willis Re chief executive John Cavanagh, who was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award, and former Novae chief executive Matthew Fosh, who was the Industry Achiever of the Year.
Other winners included The Channel Syndicate, Markel International and Aon.
The awards ceremony will be held on November 22 at the Royal Lancaster hotel in London.
All entries should be submitted electronically here, where you can also find out more about the categories, including our new award Insurtech Initiative of the Year.
Entries will be judged by our esteemed panel of independent and expert judges, who will be announced over the coming weeks.
