The acquisition of Aegon's commercial P&C portfolio by Allianz has been officially approved by the Dutch central bank and Dutch Authority for Consumers & Markets. The portfolio will be transferred Friday 1 July. From then on, Allianz will bear the risk of Aegon’s active commercial P&C portfolio with a premium volume of some €90 million, plus two run–off portfolios. Around 70 Aegon employees who manage these portfolios will transfer to Allianz.

Stronger position in commercial market

Allianz sees this step as a good opportunity to grow in the commercial market. Sjoerd Laarberg, CEO of Allianz Netherlands: ‘We see this day as the starting point for the further expansion of our range of products and services for Dutch businesses and for intensifying our collaboration with brokers. It has been a pleasure working with Aegon these past months and we would like to thank them for their efforts.’ Marco Keim, CEO of Aegon Netherlands: ‘We are pleased with the professional manner in which we have been able to transfer our commercial P&C business to Allianz. Two important goals have been achieved. We have succeeded in offering our customers continuity and giving our employees a new perspective. The focus of our non-life business now lies entirely on income protection insurance and personal non-life insurance.’

Operational continuity

In total, Allianz will take over more than 60,000 commercial customers from Aegon; the employees involved in handling the portfolios will transfer to Allianz as well to ensure operational continuity. Allianz is making every effort to minimise the impact of the acquisition for customers and advisers. The transfer of employees will ensure quality of service, personal contacts and customer knowledge.

Wide range of insurance

In addition to the commercial non-life market, Allianz in the Netherlands also offers life and disability insurance and has a strong position in motor insurance. For the commercial segment, from the self-employed to major corporations, Allianz offers its customers a wide range of solutions.
