COVER Excellence Awards 2020

Leading by example

Tuesday 10 November | 5:15PM | Virtual Awards Ceremony

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

Spanning advice firms and providers across 27 different categories this year, there are three new awards for 2020. The Best Business Protection award will shine a light on the most outstanding cover options for shareholders and key personnel, while Best Protection Platform is open to both insurers and third party administrators. Plus, the COVER Proud to Protect award, in association with Aviva, will celebrate the achievements of an adviser who has gone above and beyond for a client.

As usual, the winners of the COVER Excellence Awards – announced on 10th November - will be chosen by a panel of top industry experts.

This event is working towards the International Standard ISO 20121 and follows guidance set out by the Sustainable Event Alliance (SEA)
