Proposal to transfer CGU insurance licence
October 28, 2016
CGU Insurance has been voted Australia’s top insurer by insurance brokers in Insurance Business magazine’s annual broker survey.
CGU took out the overall prize for 2015 after coming top in six of the 13 categories surveyed, and top-three in a further five categories.
Ben Bessell, IAG Chief Executive Commercial Insurance, which owns the CGU business, said he was delighted with the recognition.
“We can’t thank our broker partners enough for the support they have given us during the year, and for their vote of confidence in this survey,” he said.
“For us this is not just about one year’s work, it’s the culmination of a long and successful transformation program at CGU to continually improve and refine our product and services offer, a program that is far from finished.
“There is still much more to do and we will not be resting on our laurels, but this award reinforces our belief we are on the right track,” Mr Bessell said.
Mr Bessell was particularly delighted that CGU’s dedicated teams supporting insurance brokers had been recognised through the survey.
“While this award is recognition of the great work our people do every day, we are continuing to look for ways to improve our service to our partners and customers,” he said.
“Over the next year, we will further leverage the investments we have made to ensure we provide the best products, tools and services, so our partners can provide customers with better CGU products and seamless, better informed and even more valuable advice.”
Over 450 insurance brokers participated in the annual Insurance Business survey. The survey results will appear in the next edition of Insurance Business magazine. You can read the full article about the awards here, plus an interview with Ben Bessell here.
