Reactions Magazine, a global publication for the insurance and reinsurance trade industry, has named Oliver Wyman and PwC consulting firms of the year during its annual awards ceremony. 

Since 1981, Reactions Magazine provides global coverage of the insurance and reinsurance industries. Topics the platform cover include property-catastrophe, casualty/liability, emerging risks, financial management, legal & regulation, claims & run-off, catastrophe bonds, broking, risk management, capital market solutions and reinsurance, among others.

Every year the publication organises an award ceremony which celebrates individuals, projects and companies who have made a big difference in the industry over the past twelve months. Among the more than thirty categories highlighted is a specific category that recognises service excellence in the consulting industry. The ‘Consultancy of the Year’ award is provided to the consulting firm which in the eyes of the jury has delivered the best project at a client in the re/insurance sector.
