"The new integrated approach anticipates the increasing globalization of risks, closes internal structural gaps in market reach, and extends Allianz's product offering and delivery at the local level to meet a clear market need. Clients and distribution partners will experience a consistent underwriting approach and access harmonized insurance solutions that are globally coordinated and locally delivered with one market interface. In parallel, employees will experience broader opportunities for their professional development and career mobility.
The move is fundamental to the Allianz Group strategy to expand its leadership position in property and casualty, to grow through scalable platforms, and drive agility in execution", as the Germanre/insurance group announced in a statement.
