On December 11, 2012, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty hosted its Professional Indemnity Insurance Seminar in Almaty, Kazakhstan, continuing the series of Financial Lines events in Russia and CIS.
Participants comprised of major local brokers and insurance companies attended the event at the Dostyk Hotel of Almaty.
After a welcome note by Sergei Ginzburg, Director of Financial Lines AGCS Russia, the floor was given to Karolina Vogelpohl, AGCS Regional Manager of Financial Lines Nordic & CEE, who presented an overview of Allianz and AGCS, and the Financial Lines strategy.
Irina Bystronovskaya, Deputy Director of Financial Lines AGCS Russia, focused on technical aspects of Professional Indemnity with her presentation “Back to Basics of Professional Indemnity Insurance,” followed by a more detailed and technical presentation, “In-depth Look at Professional Indemnity Insurance.”
The event was well received with much positive feedback on the seminar. Assel Kussainova, Deputy Head of Representative Office of Willis Kazakhstan commented that "all information presented was exactly what we needed to know, without any unnecessary deviations. All was presented succinctly, laconically and precisely.”
Galina Pakhomova, Head of the Representative Office of RFIB encouraged further organization of such events by Allianz by saying, “Thank you for organizing this event. It is fantastic that the local Kazakh market is being educated by Allianz, especially in such a complex topic such as Professional Indemnity insurance. Please continue this trend!"
