Watch the 2021 Mansfield Awards here (Aired 16/9 at 2:00pm AEST)
What are the Mansfield Awards?
The Mansfield Awards is an annual industry awards event to recognise claims excellence in the Australian insurance industry.
Named in honour of the British Lord Chief Justice who introduced the industry to the principle of uberrima fides (utmost good faith) some 250 years ago.
The Mansfield Awards emphasises the vital role that claims professionals play in the insurance industry and recognises those achieving excellence in this field.
These awards are a not-for-profit event.
Any and all funds raised via sponsorship of The Mansfield Awards will be used exclusively to cover costs, with any remaining funds to be donated to the Amal Mulia Orphanage in Sumatra, Indonesia.
These funds will help rebuild and provide care for children orphaned by the earthquake and resultant tsunami in 2007. Once established the orphanage has expanded to take in any orphan, particularly those with mental or physical disabilities.
The orphanage was chosen not only for the fact it is located very close to Fort Marlborough, the site of the loss that gave rise to the case in which Lord Mansfield established the underlying principle of utmost good faith in general insurance, but also due to the wonderful work that the organisation is committed to.
