Press release -
Allianz ‘All together’ at BIBA
- Allianz Commercial, LV= Broker, Allianz Partners and Allianz Trade will be ‘All together’ at BIBA
- TV presenter Steph McGovern will record Allianz’s Insurance Tomorrow podcast live
- Allianz’s Helen Bryant will discuss broking challenges at a BIBA panel
Allianz will showcase the strength and breadth of its UK presence, bringing its brands ‘All together’ when it exhibits at the British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) conference on 10-11 May.
Brokers will be able to meet experts from Allianz Commercial but also LV= Broker (part of Allianz Personal), Allianz Partners, which offers B2B2C insurance and assistance, and Allianz Trade, which provides trade credit insurance.
The UK’s largest insurance broking conference is the ideal opportunity for Allianz to present as ‘One face to market’.
Allianz recently unveiled ambitions to operate its mid-corporate and large-corporate insurance businesses under one market approach. Introducing a unified trading name, Allianz Commercial, the new strategy will give brokers access to Allianz’s global expertise via local trading and distribution capabilities. The integrated approach encompasses Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) which serves large corporate clients and the commercial business lines of Allianz Insurance. The teams will work closely together on trading, underwriting, and customer delivery. The Allianz Commercial business in the UK will be led by Nadia Côté as commercial managing director, who will be reporting to both AGCS CEO Joachim Mueller and Allianz Holdings UK CEO Colm Holmes.
Located at E20, the Allianz stand will be sustainable like last year, being built with recycled and recyclable materials. It will welcome brokers for face-to-face meetings and informal catch-ups, which the teams are very much looking forward to.
On Wednesday 10 May, Steph McGovern, award-winning broadcaster and financial journalist, will host a live recording of Allianz’s Insurance Tomorrow podcast. In this fringe session, an expert panel will discuss what ‘Rising to the challenge’ means to the insurance industry. The following day, on the seminar stage, Helen Bryant, director of digital tradingat Allianz, will be taking part in a BIBA panel on ‘Broking challenges in difficult economic times’.
Allianz Holdings CEO Colm Holmes comments: “These are challenging times indeed for brokers and we’re confident that our integrated approach will bring them simplicity, clarity and consistency. It will help deliver the full value of Allianz’s scale for them and for our mutual customers. BIBA is a great opportunity to talk about this with our broker partners.”
