Welcome to the MGAA Awards!

Welcome to the MGAA Awards!

The awards honour the achievements of the MGAA membership across all areas of the insurance market and they offer a platform for recognising forward-thinking initiatives.

MGAs continue to play a central role in the insurance market's ability to respond and embrace, the challenges that the market faces. Everyone involved at all stages of the value chain has had a part to play in the resilience, perseverance and successes.

We have created the awards to provide recognition for those who have gone above and beyond, provided outstanding solutions and delivered forward-thinking initiatives.

This year we have added an award to recognise the role insurers play so there are now five awards spread across the membership.

The Service Provider of the Year, MGA Initiative of the year and Community Well being award are subject to company applications. For the Rising Star award we are inviting nominations of individuals within member companies.

The MGAA Awards categories open for entry are:

The deadline for all entries is 27th May 2022, any submissions after that date will not be considered

The awards are open to all member firms that fit the specific award category.

Winners will be announced at our face to face Annual Conference at ETC venues, 133 Houndsditch on Wednesday 29th June 2022.
