Aviva Canada has been named the Canadian Insurance Carrier of the Year 2017 at the recent Insurance Analytics Canada Summit. The award was handed out by Insurance Nexus and recognizes the insurance company responsible for the most advances in placing analytics tools within their business.

“I am extremely proud of this award as it recognizes the progress our company as a whole is making in analytics and predictive modelling in the best interest of our customers,” said Greg Somerville, President and Chief Executive Officer at Aviva Canada.

The Nexus Canadian Awards were held at the Insurance Analytics Canada Summit on June 28 and 29 at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Center Hotel. Over 300 attendees watched Aviva Canada win Insurance Carrier of the year.

“Customers want simplified transactions and service, especially when they have experienced a loss. New technologies and the availability of data are changing insurance in a fundamental way – that is why we are investing in data-driven technology. We understand that analytics are key to our future success in how we better understand and serve customers,” continued Somerville.

“From self-driving cars to automated assistants, artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly evolving and finding its way into surprising daily use cases, fundamentally transforming our world. It’s disrupting and improving organizations across all industries, and now it’s headed for insurance,” said Phil Gibson, Chief Underwriting Officer at Aviva Canada. “Our mandate is to disrupt the insurance industry to respond to evolving customer needs.”
