The U.S. Insurance Awards recognize the excellence of professional teams working in the commercial insurance and risk management sectors while also raising funds for the BI Scholarship Fund. Finalist teams in 14 categories were selected by senior Business Insurance staff from submitted nominations. Finalists were then assessed and scored individually by a panel of more than 50 risk management judges to determine the winners. Celebrating its third year, the awards ceremony had originally been planned as a live event in March in New York City. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event had to be postponed and was rescheduled as a virtual event in September.
