Reactions unveiled the winners of its North American Awards last night during a glamourous ceremony at New York’s prestigious Cipriani Wall Street.

It was the 10th time Reactions has hosted an awards event in New York, although it was the second time they were focused solely on the North American and Bermudian market.

Ace was given awards for Capital Raising of the Year, Launch of the Year and Bermuda Insurer of the Year, with the first two relating to its innovative ABR Re venture which it launched with BlackRock.
