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.

Allianz report: Failure to manage natural resources brings increasing interruption and liability risks for businesses

Allianz-Allianz report: Failure to manage natural resources brings increasing interruption and liability risks for businesses
Jun 12, 2018 | Allianz SE

Natural resources such as clean air and fresh water are vital for businesses – and at the same time massively at risk across many industry sectors today. Failure to manage the earth’s natural resources or “natural capital” has consequences that extend beyond direct effects on the environment. For businesses, it can also bring new interruption and liability scenarios which can wipe out profits and impact business models, as resource scarcity, regulatory action and pressure from communities and wider society grows, warns AGCS in a new report.

Allianz-FIFA World Cup 2018: Ready to Play
Jun 12, 2018 | Allianz SE

Before the 2018 FIFA World Cup kicks off in Russia, one essential item needs to be in position – and it’s not the ball. Big or small, international or local, sporting events have an even bigger supporter - insurance. In fact, you can call it the ‘enabler’. “Without insurance there would be no World Cup, no Olympics or little organized competitive sport at all,” says Michael Furtschegger, Head of Entertainment International at Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS). “For, few would take on the risk required to stage an event, particularly one the size of the World Cup.”
