BIBA has won the Social Initiative award at the Trade Association Forum Best Practice Awards.
The judges were particularly impressed with BIBA’s signposting initiative which helps customers find insurance from a broker, and has gained support from HM Treasury.
The judging panel said: “BIBA have clearly thought long and hard about the problems traditionally associated with insurance in terms of age or medical condition and recognised an opportunity which they have maximised both for their industry and consumers.
“The initiative has had a huge impact, helping many vulnerable consumers struggling to obtain insurance protection and the introduction of a Find A Broker helpline and website has ensured that this will continue.”
BIBA Chief Executive, Eric Galbraith, said: “Many customers and businesses do not know where to find advice on suitable insurance protection. BIBA’s Find a Broker helpline and website are excellent examples of how BIBA is achieving success on behalf of members. This award is a testament to the hard work of the BIBA team and we are delighted to receive recognition from our trade association peers.”
The awards, hosted by the Trade Association Forum, received more than 100 entries and were presented at a ceremony at Plaisterers’ Hall, on 7July.
