WINNER: AVIVA FOR FRAUD PREVENTION CAMPAIGN
This year’s Thought Leadership Award goes to Aviva for their Fraud Prevention Campaign. Launched in July last year, the Aviva Fraud Report used consumer research and existing fraud expertise to increase public awareness of fraud – particularly savings and investment scams – and to encourage people to report fraud.
The campaign received extensive coverage across all forms of financial media, including national and regional broadcast news, pensions and insurance trades, national personal finance and regional news. The campaign culminated in Peter Hazlewood, Aviva’s Group Financial Crime Risk Director, giving evidence at the Work & Pensions Committee meeting: ‘Protecting pension savers | Pension Scams’.
“Raising awareness of scams is always important but even more so when the scammers were taking advantage of people's anxieties relating to Covid-19," commented one judge, applauding the reach of the fraud campaign.
