23 January 2023

BDAE has won the jury prize at the Assekuranz Award for its unique concept around insurance abroad.

The company was praised for its high level of expertise, and for the variety of the solutions it offers its clients. Those clients are mainly people who plan on staying abroad for an extended or indefinite period, whether for business or private purposes, and who need suitable health insurance protection that can no longer be covered by travel health insurance.

It was the second time in a row that an independent jury of experts presented the awards of the Mein Geld Media Group.

The underlying advisory service for insured persons, employers who send their employees and for intermediaries whose clients ask for such a specific product was also said to be outstanding.

"This award shows that our special know-how in the field of international insurance and international employee deployment meets the current needs and necessities of the market. For the past 25 years, we have worked with our great and experienced team to develop and optimise insurance products for people going abroad for longer periods”, said BDAE CEO Philipp Belau.
