AkinovA is delighted to be shortlisted for the Axco Global Insurance Awards in the Innovation in Global Risk Analytics category.

AkinovA is delighted to be shortlisted for the Axco Global Insurance Awards in the Innovation in Global Risk Analytics category. Now its 2nd year, the Axco Global Insurance Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements, innovation and collaboration of the insurance ecosystem managing complex global risk.

Following a thorough judging process, AkinovA was shortlisted ahead of the official awards ceremony to be held on the 18th April 2024.

The judging panel was made up of a diverse range of highly influential and respected figures within the insurance community, including Antonio Vianello, Head of Multinational Programs & Network Management – Generali Global Corporate & Commercial, Karen Gorman, Global Services & Solutions Leader Europe, Risk & Broking – Willis Towers Watson, and Karol Dobias, Global Head of Multinational Transformation, Performance and BEX – Allianz Commercial.

The Innovation in Global Risk Analytics Award entry detailed our outstanding work showcasing the AkinovA C1Policy™. The C1Policy™ is a new data-driven, real-time credit risk insurance product that insures Credit Card Acquirers (CCAs) against the insolvency risk of their Airline & Travel Merchant Clients. It releases holdback capital / delayed settlement to Merchant Clients, provides a source of liquid funds for CCAs to refund cardholders, and does so at competitive premium rates for the Merchant (policy buyer), linked to actual CCA exposure (policy beneficiary).

The C1Policy is tech-enabled, with real-time data, and is client demand led.

“This is fantastic recognition of the work happening at AkinovA. This category showcases the best innovators in the insurance space, and we are extremely proud of being shortlisted. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Axco team for giving us the opportunity to highlight the C1Policy™ to the industry.”

Dr. Henri Winand, CEO and Co-Founder, AkinovA

“It is with genuine delight that I extend my congratulations to AkinovA for earning a well-deserved spot as a finalist in the Innovation in Global Risk Analytics category. The standard this year was incredibly high and each shortlisted entry epitomises the very best within our industry. I look forward to hosting all our finalists at the upcoming awards ceremony”

Mark Trumper, Managing Director, Axco
