Welcome to the Reactions London Market Awards 2013 Survey.
These awards recognise excellence and unique performance for individuals, teams and companies operating in the London market.

If you would like to nominate your company for the Tier 1 categories or to cast your nomination of a firm or individual who you think is worthy, please complete the Tier 1 online form.

Please note that the poll will remain live to Friday, 8th March inclusive.
Once all the nominations are in and verified the results will be passed to our independent panel of judges, including some of the most influential figures in the London market, who will debate the merits of each nomination and any comments, alongside the number of votes received. From this they will agree on a shortlist of up to 3 names per category with the winner announced at the Reactions London Market Awards gala dinner taking place on Wednesday 26th June at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel.

The winners of the Reactions Global Awards 2012 - revealing the best insurance, reinsurance and broking companies as well as service providers and individuals - were announced at a ceremony on September 19 at New York's Cipriani Wall Street.

It is a fitting juncture for marking excellence in the insurance industry, as reinsurers and their cedents responded to a year of heavy catastrophe losses in 2011, particularly in Asia-Pacific, by paying claims quickly, staying remarkably well capitalised despite big payouts, and validating the industry's crucial role in helping keep the global economy stable.
Among the insurers, Ace won the global award, with rivals Travelers, Zurich, QBE and Mapfre scooping regional gongs for North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America, respectively.
RenaissanceRe had the best night among reinsurers, winning the overall award for best reinsurer, as well as the important property-catastrophe category and best Bermuda market company category. Transatlantic Re triumphed for the casualty/liability award, Scor claimed victory in the life reinsurance category, and Munich Re took the specialty award for aviation, energy and marine lines.
In the broking categories, MMC cleaned up: insurance broking CEO of the year went to Brian Duperreault of MMC, while the reinsurance broker award for 2012 went to Guy Carpenter's Alex Moczarski. Marsh added further laurels by winning the award for best global insurance broker, while Guy Carpenter scooped the reinsurance broking gong.
Reactions also honoured QBE's boss Frank O'Halloran with a lifetime achievement award.
The awards are the result of an online poll of our readers and the Reactions editorial team then canvassing the market through informal interviews with underwriting executives, broking executives, equity analysts and other observers and making editorial choices on which firms, people and deals are most deserving this year.
The full list of winners is below.
