Founded by the Association of Czech Insurance Brokers (AČPM) and co-organized by the Czech Insurance Association (ČAP) and the specialized information server oPojištění.cz.
The 17th year of this oldest professional contest in insurance culminated with a gala evening held in the Congress Centre of the Czech National Bank (CNB) in Prague on May 11, 2017, under the auspices of the CNB Governor Jiří Rusnok.
The insurance brokers – as experts who work with insurers on a daily basis – assessed the insurance companies’ performance for 2016 in the following categories: insurance of industry, car insurance, civil insurance, specialized insurance and life insurance. Out of these five categories, Kooperativa pojišťovna won three, Česká podnikatelská pojišťovna reached for the first place in car insurance and EULER HERMES SA obtained “gold” in the specialized insurance category.
As in previous years, the brokers also voted for “Personality of the Insurance Market” – a title awarded for an outstanding contribution to the development of insurance in the Czech Republic. This time the lot fell upon Jiřina Nepalová, founder and director of the No.1 brokerage Renomia a.s. and current President of the AČPM.
Within the framework of the contest, the insurers also judged the overall performance of insurance brokers. Thus, Renomia a.s., AČPM member, received the Insurance Broker of the Year 2016 award.
