Allianz Commercial has rolled out its new wholesale and retail proposition to the UK broker market, as part of its ongoing strategies to strengthen presence in the country's mid-corporate sector.
According to the insurer, the offering will deliver bespoke cover and service elements customized to the individual needs of wholesale and retail businesses as well as sector-specific advice services and full risk management support.
The wholesale and retail offering is aimed at clients with a property and casualty premium of £10,000 to £100,000 and is available to brokers and their clients from Allianz’s 14 regional branch locations.
The company said that its team of wholesale and retail experts will be available to offer technical advice to brokers on a variety of issues.
Allianz property & casualty manager Anita Gough will offer underwriting expertise, while risk control surveyor, Steve Sandalls, will act as the dedicated point of contact for risk management advice.
Apart from this, technical claims manager, Jim Robins, will offer brokers with expertise on all wholesale and retail claims matters.
The proposition comprises free trade specific cover extensions, disaster recovery protection, a 24/7 legal helpline and online legal advice service, health and safety toolkit, and sector-specific risk management guidance.
In the event of an incident which made the insured’s premises unfit for ongoing occupation, the disaster recovery protection will assist wholesale and retail businesses to get back up and keep running.
Allianz Insurance underwriting and technical director Neil Clutterbuck said: "We have always had a broad appetite in the Commercial insurance market place.
"Our bespoke wholesale and retail proposition is the first in a number of planned steps to make major inroads into specific sectors.
"Add to this our great branch network, populated with technically qualified underwriters and supported by a strong claims service gives us, we believe, a compelling proposition," Clutterbuck added.
