Celebrating (re)insurance market talent


9 Sept 2021



We are proud to announce the 2021 finalists for Insurance Insider Honours.


Winners will be announced at our LIVE awards ceremony at The Royal Lancaster in London on 28th September! 


Welcome to the Insurance Insider Honours, the global (re)insurance awards ceremony that recognises international market talent. 


Join us for the ten-year anniversary of the Insurance Insider Honours ceremony for what promises to be a spectacular evening packed with the best and brightest leaders from the wholesale, specialty and (re)insurance markets on 28th September in London. 


For more information on tables or sponsorship packages, please get in touch with Jack Thomson, Commercial Director.
Given the nature of awards events and the current government regulations, we will not be requiring masks and we will not be enforcing social distancing at the awards. The awards will run as they were pre-pandemic. However, we would very much like our guests to take personal responsibility for their health and the health of other guests. We would strongly advise that all guests have a lateral flow test within 24 hours of the event. We request that anyone should not attend if they have been ill in any way within 5 days of the event, or if their lateral flow test shows a positive result. We will pay close attention to government regulations and will update our policy should rules change.
