Small and mid-sized enterprise clients of Brokerslink in 95 countries now have better access to Allianz solutions. Allianz provides worldwide expertise and market access.
“We can already observe an increase in business growth across the globe,” said Jean-Marc Pailhol, Head of Group Market Management and Distribution at Allianz SE. “As part of our corporate strategy 'Renewal Agenda' Allianz is expanding its insurance business in growth markets. This includes expanding insurance offers for small and medium-sized enterprises with international operations.”
The partnership between Allianz and Brokerslink, signed on June 6, 2017, also encompasses the cooperation of Allianz in the renowned Brokerslink Conference. The 2017 conference will take place in Marrakech, Morocco, from September 28 to 29.
“We are delighted to have a strategic partnership with Allianz; an insurer whose brand equates with strength, quality and stability. We look forward to a long future of working together to offer quality risk solutions to our clients around the world,” said Paul Bitner, Managing Director of Brokerslink.
In Australia, where Allianz and the Brokerslink member PSC Insurance Brokers have worked together for several years, the global partnership has been warmly welcomed. “Our relationship is deep and multi-layered,” said David Hosking, Chief General Manager of the Broker and Agency Division of Allianz Australia. “The trust and collaboration means we seek to maximize mutual opportunities and there has not been an issue which we have not been able to work through."
The global partnership between Allianz and Brokerslink will be extended annually based on positive feedback from both sides.
