UNIQA Group launches HUB for International Programs

31 January 2024 —
The UNIQA Group launches a HUB for International Programs in Poland, which will be a competence center for 15 countries in Central and Eastern Europe where the insurer is present.

Its aim is to standardize the offer for multinational companies insuring their operations within international programs and leverage UNIQA Poland's longstanding experience in this field.

The UNIQA IP HUB has been established for UNIQA companies from Central and Eastern Europe (with exception of the home market in Austria, as services of this type are already offered here), which, due to their cross-border operations, require insurance coverage not only for their domestic business, but also for risks associated with international operations. International programs will be offered by UNIQA Poland in response to requests for proposals received from local UNIQA companies and their collaborating brokers.

„For many years we see a great potential of growth in Property and Casualty Insurance for corporate clients - especially in Central and Eastern Europe with a steadily growing number of enterprises. Many of them even decide to operate outside their home country. Based on our vast experience we can provide standardized offerings exactly meeting the needs of these international clients”, says Wolfgang Kindl, member of the management board for customer & market international at UNIQA Group.

"We are pleased that UNIQA Poland's experience has been recognized within the Group because we undoubtedly possess the knowledge and tools to manage international insurance programs in a professional and effective manner. We attach great importance to the quality of cooperation with our partners and we know that this is appreciated by them”, adds Adam Łoziak, member of the management board for corporate clients and housing at UNIQA Poland.

International programs are negotiated individually and tailored to the client's needs, considering the specifics of their operations, asset values, territories, structures, as well as the legal regulations in each country.

"For our corporate clients, the UNIQA IP HUB means tailored offerings and unified insurance coverage that aligns with their international needs. Considering local specifics and ensuring efficient coordination, it provides a comprehensive, customer-friendly solution, as well as risk prevention and claims management", explains Olivera Böhm-Rybak, Chief Corporate & Affinity Business Officer International Markets UNIQA Insurance Group AG.
