Allianz scoops Mansfield Awards
Allianz Australia has won the Gold Mansfield Award for excellence in claims-handling.
The insurer was presented with the award at a ceremony in Sydney last night. Finalists for the overall award were FM Global, QBE and last year’s inaugural winner Chubb.
Allianz also won the Mansfield Award for SME Property and Casualty and was a finalist in the Personal Lines category.
The awards, named after the English Lord Chief Justice who introduced the concept of utmost good faith to the insurance process in 1766, are organised by Insurance News and LMI Group, and made possible by the support of sponsors Insurance & Care NSW (icare) and Steadfast.
Winners and finalists are calculated using official reports and surveys conducted by LMI, with the results “weighted” so all insurers are viewed equally.
About 200 industry leaders, claims professionals and service providers attended the awards function at the Establishment Ballroom.
Companies were not invited to make submissions or be involved in the judging process.
