Digital Risks at the 2019 Insurance Choice Awards

The results of the awards were based solely on customer feedback and involved over 26,000 people leaving a vote for their chosen insurance provider in 23 various categories. Digital Risks has been nominated and gone through to the Finalists stage for two of them: Innovation of the Year and Best Newcomer, taking home the award for the latter. A big thank you goes to all of our customers who took the time to leave their feedback and vote for us. We keep our customers in mind when designing our products and every aspect of the customer experience. That's why it was especially rewarding to receive this feedback and recognition. Our aim is to completely reinvent business insurance around our customers' needs, so there's a number of new features and improvements to look forward to in the near future.

Innovation of the Year was awarded to FloodFlash, an ingenious new insurance broker protecting their customers from costs inflicted by catastrophic flooding - a well-deserved recognition to our fellow industry innovators.

“The voting process has once again demonstrated that many insurance firms have made the jump from viewing their customers simply as policy numbers. It’s also particularly pleasing to see that innovative new propositions are starting to filter through and delight customers, with firms like By Miles, Laka, Digital Risks and FloodFlash representing this new wave of insurance firms.” - says Michael Fotis, the Founder of Smart Money People.
