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.
