People often talk about falling into insurance, but for Ananya Tiwari, a career in the industry was an active choice, driven by her passion for microinsurance and the transformative impact it can have on the lives of people living below the poverty line. “I feel that using micro crop insurance to uplift poor farmers or micro life insurance in high-risk areas, for instance, truly showcases what insurance is all about: rebuilding the world,” Tiwari says.

At Proclaim, she’s found nothing but support for her ideas and initiatives. In 2017, Tiwari founded the CET Forum, a construction insurance organisation; Proclaim supported her efforts by offering office space for committee meetings, marketing assistance and even sponsoring an event. “This support led to greater recognition and support from the industry at large through AILA and ANZIIF awards,” says Tiwari, who was also a finalist for the 2019 ANZIIF Young Insurance Professional of the Year Award.
