Finalists announced for 2019 Australian Insurance Industry Awards


The Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF) are pleased to announce the finalists of the 2019 Australian Insurance Industry Awards.

Now in its sixteenth year, the Australian Insurance Industry’s ‘night of nights’ recognises and celebrates the accomplishment of individuals and companies spanning across the breadth of Australian insurance.

‘The Australian Insurance Awards are a platform for the industry to come together and shine light on areas of brilliance, and the positive impact we have on the community,’ says Prue Willsford, CEO of ANZIIF.

‘Every year I find myself inspired by some of the incredible achievements from individuals and companies, and their contribution to raising the standard of professionalism for the insurance and financial services industry’

‘In a digital age where the market is so competitive, it’s imperative to highlight the great things the industry is doing to better serve the public. I’d like to congratulate this year’s finalists for taking the time to submit and demonstrate such excellence in their submissions.’

This year, the 2019 awards will be held at The Star Event Centre in Sydney on 22 August.
