The EMMAs, considered to be the Oscars of the global mobility profession, recognized Cigna for overall excellence in the field of expatriate insurance.

"Each day, Cigna furthers our customer-centric commitment by developing innovative products and providing superior customer service," said Andrew Kielty, president of Cigna Global Health Benefits. "I am extremely proud of our team for winning this award two years in a row."
