MetLife finalist in prestigious ANZIIF Awards – Life Insurer of the Year, D&I

MetLife Australia has been named a finalist in two categories for the 17th annual ANZIIF Australian Insurance Industry Awards, which recognise excellence and professionalism in the insurance sector.

MetLife is again a finalist in the Life Insurance Company of the Year category, after winning the award in 2019. MetLife has also been named a finalist in the Excellence in Workplace Diversity and Inclusion category.

With the industry significantly impacted by the COVID pandemic throughout 2020 and 2021, MetLife has shown its commitment to customers, business partners and people during this difficult time.

MetLife CEO Richard Nunn said: “We’ve focused on our customers, partners and people, and we’re thrilled to be a finalist for Life Insurance Company of the Year and in the Excellence in Workplace Diversity and Inclusion category.

“Being recognised in these two categories reflects our people-first approach, our commitment to our partners and customers, and our ability to adapt to the rapidly changing life insurance industry.”

The 2021 ANZIIF Awards mark the return of one of the insurance industry’s most prestigious awards, having been cancelled in 2020 due to COVID. The ANZIIF awards are an annual celebration of the accomplishments of businesses and individuals across the Australian insurance industry. The winners will be announced by ANZIIF on 26 October.
