Judging Process

Intermediaries across the UK are invited to submit real life case studies in a number of their chosen categories which they believe highlight their organisation’s first-class client care, innovative thinking and overall professionalism.

Intermediaries are also invited to cast their vote to recognise which providers in their respective fields have gone the extra mile over the past year. The leading provider firms from that vote count are then invited to submit an entry outlining their credentials.

While the Awards focuses primarily on the UK health & protection market, international advisers and providers are invited to take part in the relevant categories.

Shortlists for both sets of Awards then go through to a judging panel made up of a broad range of respected industry experts across the industry, who then select winners in each of the categories.

The judging panels’ decisions are final and Health & Protection has no influence over the outcome of their deliberations.
