Al Wathba Insurance the winner of the Insurance Asia Awards 2019 – “Mid-Size Direct Insurer of the Year” – the United Arab Emirates, 16th July 2019 – Singapore

Over a hundred top executives graced the event.

Over 54 exceptional insurance companies from 18 countries were recognized at the fourth Insurance Asia Awards held at Shangri-La Singapore on 16 July. The celebration beat last year’s record after gathering nearly 120 senior executives from the insurance industry.

This year’s nominations were judged by Richard Holloway, Managing Director for Southeast Asia & India Life at Milliman; Frank Dubois, Head of Insurance at KPMG Singapore; Steven Goh, Head of Insurance Audit at KPMG Singapore; Woo Shea Leen, Insurance Leader at PwC Singapore; and Liza Drew, FSO Indirect Tax Leader – Asia Pacific at Ernst & Young.

“Although insurtech challengers have multiplied, let’s not forget the real work that all the big, existing companies are doing. This takes into account the rapid pace of change that insurers have to go to in order to meet changing customer expectations as well as the hardship in putting out new products to consumers which is all done to ensure that we live in a better-insured world,” said Tim Charlton, publisher of Insurance Asia magazine. “Tonight is a night to celebrate and enjoy the success of a job well done over the past 12 months.”
