INSTANDA shortlisted for the Insurance Insider Honours 2017

“We knew exactly what we didn’t want — a pointless new entry to the rubber chicken circuit. It was our hope that the Insurance Insider Honours would build from its first year to become a benchmark of professionalism and achievement in the global market that would stand the test of time. I can safely say that in our sixth year we have achieved that. An Insider Honour has developed into a trophy that is hard won, richly deserved and whose bestowal earns the begrudging respect of even one’s bitterest rival.”

Mark Geoghegan
Managing Director, The Insurance Insider

We are thrilled that INSTANDA has been shortlisted for Insurance Insider Honours 2017! There are 12 different categories to be won this year. After an afternoon of deliberation on Wednesday 5th July, the judging panel have announced INSTANDA was shortlisted for The InsurTech Honours. This award recognises companies that can demonstrate the successful application of radical new technologies to the global (re)insurance market.

We would also like to congratulate one of our clients, Travel Insurance Facilities Group, for being shortlisted as MGA of the year! The winners will be announced at Old Billingsgate on 7th September. Watch this space!
