US Property Cat Online Awards

The 2020 US Property Cat Rankings survey only allowed for underwriters and brokers active in the US property cat reinsurance sector to take part. Survey participation levels were set as to achieve statistically significant results.


Unlike traditional awards ceremonies, where a panel of judges pick who they believe to be the winner of a category, the winners are derived from aggregated survey data collected by Insurance Insider's Insights Team.


The shortlists for each individual award are made up of the highest-ranked individuals, from each firm, in their respective fields. For the company awards, we will pick the firms that received the highest scores for each category.

 

The winner of each category will simply be the individual or company with the highest score made up from their supporters' votes.

About the Rankings Series

Insurance Insider Rankings are two-way surveys by which underwriters nominate and rate the best brokers, and brokers qualify the best underwriters. Dedicated reports are currently available across five lines of business including cyber, political risk, political violence, US property cat and D&O.

 

Individuals are scored across a number of specifically defined attributes and professional excellence is illustrated by insightful statements, making the Rankings a qualified view on each specific class of business from the market participants themselves.

 

With league tables of individuals and teams, scoring of attributes, testimonials and segmentation of results based on years of experience and premium, the product is a must-have for companies interested in researching and benchmarking talent.

 

The Rankings are also an unbeatable discovery tool for companies that want to assess how their teams – and their competitors’ teams – are being perceived in the market as well as a complement for due diligence processes on partnerships or transactions within the space.

 

Rankings results are delivered through a series of annual reports, and awards events.
