24th Asia Insurance Industry Awards unveils finalists

| 11 Aug 2020

Forty-eight of Asia's top (re)insurers, brokers and service providers have been chosen as finalists for the prestigious 24th Asia Insurance Industry Awards (AIIA).

This year's Awards saw over 300 entries vying for the top prize in 16 categories. The submissions were assessed by 38 judges—drawn from industry leaders, regulators and experts within Asia and beyond.

Having shortlisted 48 finalists through a remote judging process, a second round of judging will be held on 8 September to select the winners by a secret ballot—with the results to be announced on 2 November.

The AIIA stands out for its well-defined criteria as well as a rigorous and transparent selection process audited by KPMG. As a result, the awards have become a much sought-after mark of excellence and peer group endorsement for insurance professionals in Asia.

Asia Insurance Review – the voice of the insurance industry in Asia – founded the Awards in 1997 and has been hosting the AIIA annually since then.
