The 2013 winners were chosen from a highly competitive field consisting of 22 nominations from insurers in India, Japan, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The awards were given out during the 2nd Asia Insurance CIO Summit on November 20 in Singapore.

The winners are:

  • E-Commerce: Now Health International
  • Best Insurer: Technology: HDFC Standard Life Insurance
  • Best Newcomer: Liberty Videocon General Insurance
