QBE wins insurance award

QBE has picked up a confidence booster ahead of the NIBA General Insurer of the Year Award announcement in September, after winning a major insurance award.

Last week, QBE was named CQIB All-Rounder Insurer of the Year, with CGU named runner-up.

QBE won NIBA’s prestigious insurer award for an unprecedented 11 years straight until being upset by Zurich in 2013. Zurich also took the trophy home last year but only by the slimmest of margins, meaning competition for the prize is likely to be very strong this year.

Meanwhile, Allianz Australia took home CQIB’s claims service award, with the domestic insurer award going to CGU.

Industrial specialist UAA nabbed the underwriting agency award, while the Peter McCarthy CQIB Young Professional of the Year Award was claimed by Rebecca Challenor from JW Bell and Associates.

The NIBA General Insurer of the Year will be named at the NIBA Convention in Melbourne in September. Click here for more information.
