COVER Excellence Awards 2022

Championing protection and health insurance for 25 years

Tuesday 1 November | The Brewery, London

The COVER Excellence Awards celebrate the leading firms and intermediaries within the protection, life and health insurance space.

And we are pleased to announce that in 2022 COVER will be celebrating 25 years championing the protection and health insurance industry! We invite you to join us in our celebration by entering the awards and showcasing your contribution to the industry.

Spanning advisory firms and insurance providers across 30 different categories this year there are four new awards for 2022. The Outstanding Client Engagement categories offer both intermediaries and insurance providers the opportunity to showcase how they are moving the dial in communicating and developing relationships with clients and advisers, respectively, while the Outstanding Adviser Network award will recognise the protection and/or health insurance network doing the most to help advisers achieve better results, for themselves and consumers.

As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations, there will also be a special, one-off award on the programme. The Outstanding Contribution to Protection & Health will recognise both the protection and/or health insurance provider and intermediary that have made the most significant contributions to the industry over the past 25 years, whether through ground-breaking products and services, championing industry causes and standards, or pioneering new ways of helping consumers during difficult times.

In a change to previous years, COVER has also streamlined the process for provider categories by removing the nominations stage and focusing solely on submissions.

As usual, the winners of the COVER Excellence Awards – announced during a black-tie ceremony on 1st November - will be chosen by a panel of top industry experts.

Deadline to submit: 1st September
