The range of risks covered in a global programme is expanding all the time as new and emerging risks appear - driving innovation and creativity to meet the needs of international customers operating in a wide range of sectors all around the world. At the same time, traditional covers face considerable challenges, particularly with the current hard market. Capacity issues, increasing rates and tighter terms and conditions mean that buyers need to be more creative with retentions, greater use of captives and consider alternative risk transfer solutions.  

This award will recognise high-performing underwriting teams who have designed market-leading innovative solutions for their clients over the last 12-18 months – delivering growth, business performance and exceptional outcomes for customers. The entry can focus on one specific programme where outstanding performance can be demonstrated – or it could be through the overall work of the team over this period.
