The Royal Albert Hall in London provided a suitably grandiose setting for the prestigious British Insurance Awards 2015.

AIG in the UK for the first time ever collected the highly coveted “General Insurer of the Year” award as well as the individual “Young Achiever of the Year” award for Charlotte Lach.

General Insurer of the Year

To win this award, the AIG UK team had to demonstrate, as part of a broad strategic vision, a commitment to meeting customer needs by delivering a high quality of service across all of the team’s activities.

The judges could see that the team had a clear focus on;
- The London Market;
- Portfolio/facilities business; and
- Retail specialisms

Overall, they acknowledged that AIG in the UK is delivering strongly on the company’s retail and wholesale platforms, and, in addition, the team’s spirit and commitment to diversity.

Said Jacqueline McNamee, Managing Director - UK Zone, “I would like to thank everyone across the UK business for your hard work over the past year and more. This award is public recognition that your achievements and the success we have all enjoyed over the past year have been recognized by the industry.
