Allianz has welcomed the third intake of Commercial brokers selected for its 2014 Partner Academy Scholarship Programme, at a launch event held at the Chartered Insurance Institute headquarters in the City of London.
Allianz has awarded 33 places to scholars this year, after receiving its highest number of applications yet from almost 150 candidates.
The successful applicants were joined at the event by Allianz representatives and their broker sponsors. Speaking at the event was Simon McGinn, General Manager, Allianz Commercial and Dr Sandy Scott, Chief Executive Officer, CII.
Now in its third year, the programme provides first-class tuition and revision sessions including free study texts to successful applicants, as well as invaluable networking opportunities at regular events. The initiative builds on the success of the Allianz Partners Academy, a long-running training initiative which has more than 500 brokers taking part each year.
Simon McGinn, Allianz Commercial, commented: “We have been very impressed with the high calibre of applicants this year and I am delighted to welcome our third intake of commercial broker scholars. The programme has been extremely successful in its first two years and its continuation reaffirms our ongoing commitment to nurture the future talent of the insurance industry and play our part in driving up professional standards that benefit customers.”
