Multinational insurance superstars celebrated at Axco’s inaugural Global Insurance Awards
In a glittering ceremony at the Hilton Bankside in London hosted by comedian Maisy Adams, winners across 10 different categories were announced at the first Axco global Insurance Awards.
Designed to celebrate the best that the multinational insurance business has to offer, competition for the shortlist of entries was very strong. The finalists, from a wide range of businesses, all scored highly against our judging criteria of Ambition, Excellence, Innovation, Impact, and Customer Experience. Our panel of independent judges had a difficult time choosing from the many entries showcasing examples of excellence from across the market.
