InsuranceERM is on the hunt for the very best in insurance risk management, actuarial and risk modelling practices and technology providers to be recognised and championed at our annual UK & Europe 2021 awards.

The headline for this article references the action film Taken, where Liam Neeson’s character says he possesses a “very particular set of skills acquired over a very long career”.

And while we promise not to hunt you down, InsuranceERM’s 2021 awards are a great way to recognise the great work by insurance teams, companies, individuals and service providers in adapting and performing during the Covid-19 crisis, in what has been an exceptionally difficult year.

The deadline for award entries is Friday 11 December 2020.


This year’s awards feature 37 categories. In addition to the traditional risk and capital management prizes, there is an opportunity for technology providers innovating in climate risk to enter a new award, the climate risk management solution of the year.

The InsuranceERM 2021 UK & Europe awards represent a great way for re/insurers to thank and celebrate their teams for excelling during the Covid-19 pandemic in serving customers and ensuring operational resilience.

Entering an InsuranceERM award entry on behalf of your team, colleague, supplier or client shows how much you value their passion and very particular set of skills. It also shows you care. Self-nominations are also welcome.


Submit an entry or entries

To paraphrase the film Taken, InsuranceERM will look for you, we will find you and you will be awarded!
