Axco Insurance Information Services (Axco) is celebrating 50 years of partnership with the international insurance industry with a series of charitable sporting events taking place throughout the year, as well as pledging 50 volunteering days to charity.
The ‘50 for 50’ initiative will see staff members take part in 50 different sporting events around the world, including a virtual circumnavigation of the globe with staff aiming to complete a cumulative 40,000 kilometre walk.
In addition, every Axco staff member will have the opportunity to participate in a volunteer activity of their choice. Axco is one of the founding board members of the recently established London chapter of the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF), which promotes charitable giving and volunteering in the industry.
In keeping with Axco’s focus on research and reports detailing (re)insurance markets in over 170 territories, they will also be hosting a series of webinars, roundtables and breakfast briefings.
Tim Yeates, Managing Director at Axco commented: “We’re proud to be marking 50 years of supporting the insurance industry with essential information and data. The charitable events, as well as new product developments we have planned for this year, are part of our enduring commitment to our clients and the industry.”
Further ‘50 for 50’ sporting events Axco staff will be participating in will include the London Marathon, the London to Paris bike race and closer to home, the 2016 Standard Chartered Great City Race.
More details about Axco’s 2016 events will be published throughout the year.
