NIBA today announced Allianz, CGU and QBE as the contenders for the annual General Insurer of the Year Award, set to be announced at the 2015 NIBA Convention in Melbourne on 7 September.
The award is judged on the results of broker voting as part of NIBA’s annual Broker Market Survey, in which NIBA member brokers rate insurers’ products and services in a range of categories. More than 1100 brokers took part this year.
Zurich took home the 2013 and 2014 titles but the company narrowly missed a finalist position this year.
CGU and Allianz have not previously won the award since its inception in 1998, while QBE claimed it for a remarkable 11 consecutive years between 2002-2012.
Linda Evans, NIBA’s Professional Development Executive in charge of the survey, said: “Once again the vote was extremely close and all our finalists are to be commended for the efforts they put into servicing brokers as effectively and efficiently as possible.”
