Alternative Risk Transfer from the Allianz specialists
Specialist challenges need specialist solutions. And sometimes these solutions go beyond traditional insurance to alternative risk transfer. This is where our subsidiary, Allianz Risk Transfer, works with Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty to find the best solutions for our clients.
Allianz Risk Transfer is Allianz’s center of competence for alternative risk transfer: we provide tailored insurance, reinsurance and other non-traditional risk management solutions for corporate and financial clients worldwide.
Working closely with Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty, we use insurance techniques to create innovative risk management solutions for corporate clients. We specialize in building customized long-term agreements covering a broad range of risks: in many cases, these are multi-year and multi-line arrangements.
Our reinsurance arm provides bespoke alternative risk transfer solutions for insurance and reinsurance companies for whom we provide highly specialist boutique services often not available in the traditional market. Our product range includes prospective products such as structured quota shares, structured whole account covers, and structured per risk covers, as well as retroactive products such as loss portfolio transfers.
Insurance Linked Markets
Insurance Linked Markets (ILM) focuses on the convergence between insurance and capital markets. Insurance Linked Markets involve the structuring of insurance risks (such as event-driven exposures like earthquakes and hurricanes) into a form that is accessible to capital market investors – for example through catastrophe bonds.
