The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) and Commercial Risk Europe have announced the European Risk Management Awards 2018.

The awards recognize the highest achievers within the European risk management community. They also reward excellence and innovation within the core service provider sector: insurers, brokers, and professional services. An independent judging panel is made up of leading risk managers from FERMA and its national associations.

Three new awards have been introduced this year including the Emerging Risk Initiative of the Year award under Excellence in Risk Management and two rising star categories in the Excellence in Customer Service awards.

Risk managers and insurance buyers will be invited to vote online for outstanding service providers in addition to the standard, online entries from companies. Risk managers and insurance buyers can also submit names of individuals who have shown strength in leadership and an individual commitment to customer service.
