The entry criteria for the “Young Meteor” award provide that the candidate is an individual aged 35 or younger at the end of the calendar year prior to the award and working in the convergence sector. The winner would have already made a significant contribution to the sector and be nominated or supported by their departmental manager. The entry criteria for “Investor of the Year” provide that candidates will be institutions, individuals or investment teams that have made an outstanding contribution to the development of the ILS investor community in the previous year. The winner will have demonstrated either a continued, deep commitment to the ILS sector, success in attracting new investors to the sector through a fund, an innovative or pioneering approach or the commitment to research and understand the sector. The “Outstanding Contributor of the Year” recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the sector in the past year and consistently aided its development from an early stage. Judges were also looking for someone who developed new products and original solutions to deploy capital and meet investor appetite for insurance-linked risk. Special acknowledgement may be given to those who have also shown a genuine interest in sharing knowledge and understanding of the market and its potential with prospective participants. The entry criteria for “Initiative of the Year” provide that candidates will be from any sector within the convergence market whose specific initiative has significantly aided its development. The winner of this broad category will be a corporation or a team whose specific innovation has made an outstanding contribution to improving the way that (re) insurance risk is transferred in the past year.
