2018 Health Insurance Daily Awards – FINALISTS!

There are only two international categories available for nomination in the 2018 Health Insurance Awards, and Global Albatross is a finalist in both!!

To become a finalist in 1 category alone is amazing, but to be nominated for 2 – we are on top of the world!

This is an independent awards event, with the judging panel comprising of industry experts who have been chosen for their knowledge, objectivity and credibility. The judges evaluate the categories relevant to their specialist knowledge, expertise and experience.

So, this means we are heading to London in October! The event is hosted by British stand-up comedian, presenter and actor, Jimmy Carr! Looking forward to attending and maybe bringing home an award, or two!

Wish us luck!


Still pinching ourselves about winning the 2017 Best IPMI Intermediary at the prestigious awards in London. An epic win against such big competition. Here’s the video of the category presentation. Please like and subscribe! (footage courtesy of Health Insurance Daily)
