Wesleyan named Insurance Company of the Year

Wesleyan Assurance Society has been named UK Insurance Company of the Year in the 2012 ACQ Global Awards.

The Birmingham-based financial mutual was praised for its commitment to excellence and quality after being nominated by readers of ACQ, the international M&A magazine.

Wesleyan Chief Executive Craig Errington said: We are delighted that ACQ and its readers have recognised us as UK Insurance Company of the Year.

Our unique business model of providing financial services to select professional groups is delivering real success. Also, as a mutual we are able to put the interests of our customers at the heart of everything we do and I believe that is why we have seen strong year-on-year growth and new business sales increase by 75%* since the first half of 2007, the start of the financial crisis.

At a time when trust in the sector is at an all time low, we saw a 39%* increase in the sales of savings products last year as our customers seek a safe home for their hard earned money. Wesleyan has an impressive record of investment performance, proven financial strength and we have delivered industry leading returns to our with profits customers.

Jake Robson, Editor in Chief of ACQ, added: The winners represent the very best in their field from around the world and Wesleyan truly deserves the accolade of Insurance Company of the Year.
