Congratulations to Emergence Insurance on taking home the Brokers' Pick Product of the Year Award and a silver medal in the cyber and information technology liability category at Insurance Business magazine's Brokers on Underwriters Awards earlier this month.

This is the second time the specialist cyber insurance underwriting agency has been named Brokers' Pick for its cyber event protection insurance policy, which Sparke Helmore Lawyers' Cyber Insurance team collaborated on, that assists brokers develop bespoke programs for clients. It was also recognised for its market-leading online portal that facilitates brokers to quote and bind cyber policies for more than 13,000 occupations for businesses with up to $75 million in annual turnover.

"Congratulations to Managing Director Troy Filipcevic and the Emergence team on these outstanding accolades," said National Commercial Insurance Group Leader, Chris Wood. "We're very proud to have assisted Emergence to develop this award-winning product in 2015 and to have been a part of their journey to date. This terrific product provides brokers with tailored solutions for what is an increasingly prevalent risk for businesses of all shapes and sizes".

The Awards recognise the best underwriters across 11 areas of specialisation, including strata cover, public liability and property, as voted by brokers.
