Munich, Dec 13, 2016

From 1 January 2018, Allianz will be the new insurance partner of HypoVereinsbank (UniCredit Bank AG). From 2018, retail and corporate customers of HypoVereinsbank will be able to benefit from the broad range of products and services from Allianz. All customers’ needs will be covered in future by Allianz products ranging from life, through property, to health insurance solutions. Customers will have access to advisers from HypoVereinsbank and Allianz for holistic and needs-oriented consultation. Personal consultation will be complemented by digital packages and services.

Allianz Deutschland is using the collaboration to further expand sales through banks as part of its growth initiative. HypoVereinsbank, which is part of UniCredit, is strengthening its sales of insurance products through this collaboration and thereby ensuring its growth ambitions in the German market.

“As market leader Allianz is the ideal insurance partner for the ambitious growth and premium positioning of HypoVereinsbank. The partnership represents a gain for our customers. They will benefit from two strong brands, world-class holistic advice and a high-quality product range which will cover any white spots that there have been in the past. The collaboration will therefore strengthen our market position and it entails significant potential for income,” commented Dr Theodor Weimer, Spokesman of the Executive Board of HypoVereinsbank..

“We are delighted that we have been able to attract a new strategic partner in HypoVereinsbank for our banking sales,” said Dr Manfred Knof, Chairman of the Board of Management of Allianz Deutschland. “With our common understanding of consistent customer orientation, holistic advice and digital services we complement each other ideally and create significant value added for customers. The objective of Allianz is to further expand our strong market position with this collaboration.”

The new collaboration with Allianz will replace the previous collabo-ration of UniCredit’s HypoVereinsbank with the Ergo Group on 31 December 2017. Contracts that customers of HypoVereinsbank have concluded with Ergo will remain in force. From 1 January 2018, it will only be possible to take out new insurance contracts through the bank with Allianz. Details of the new collaboration will be communicated at an early stage before the venture is launched.
