Insurers win big at banking and finance awards

Suncorp has scooped General Insurance Company of the Year award for the second time in three years at the annual Australian Banking & Finance Insurance awards last week.

Matthew Pearson, executive general manager commercial claims, accepted the award on behalf of the insurer at the Sydney event.

“This award is a testament to everyone’s hard work. On behalf of the whole team at Suncorp, I would like to thank the judges, the team at Australian Banking & Finance, and the sponsors for this great recognition.

“The insurance industry faces an ongoing challenge to promote the value of insurance to the community. As an industry we must continue to support efforts to reduce risk throughout Australia,” said Pearson.

“Suncorp believes it is our responsibility to be part of the solution. The past 12 months have demonstrated how the industry can have a real impact on people’s lives by taking an active role."

Allianz was also in for a night of celebrating, taking home both Life Insurance Product of the Year and Innovation of the Year awards.

Chief general manager, sales and distribution, Jonathan Poole said: “We are delighted to have won these prestigious awards. It is recognition of the dedication of Allianz’s employees to deliver competitive and market-leading products and services to our customers and business partners.”
