Glittering prizes for Axa

Axa scooped seven of the 13 awards at the Lifesearch Protection Awards.

The provider picked up awards for best service provider, best critical-illness provider, best underwriting team and best overall provider.

Other awards won by the company included the accolade for treating customers fairly, best marketing and communications and best individual impact, which went to Axa protection account manager Naomi Greatorex.

Royal Liver won the award for most improved provider, Pioneer was best income protection provider, Pru Protect best new initiative and Legal & General too the award for best e-commerce provider.

Fortis managing director Martin Werth clinched the award for most engaged provider chief executive.

Lifesearch managing director Tom Baigrie says: “All the recipients can feel proud in the knowledge that their success is a true measure of their hard work over the past year.

“All relevant staff have one vote each and the office with the most votes wins. There is no entry procedure and no judging panel, which means it is a true reflection of Lifesearch’s experiences with the providers.”
