Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty Recognized with Various Industry Awards

The business publications Global Finance, European CEO and Intelligent Insurer recognize Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty with numerous awards, including best global general liability insurer and insurance leader of the year in Europe.

Global Finance

In December 2012, the monthly corporate finance publication Global Finance named AGCS the winner in three of its “World’s Best Global Risk Management Providers” categories.

Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty was recognized by Global Finance as:

  • Best General Liability Insurer – Global
  • Best General Liability Insurer – Central & Eastern Europe
  • Best D&O Insurer – Central & Eastern Europe

Additionally, Allianz was named as Europe’s Best Overall Insurer for the regions Europe and Central and Eastern Europe, and Euler Hermes was selected as the Best Global Trade Credit Insurer.

Winners were determined by Global Finance, a panel of 14 risk management and finance executives and by nearly 1,400 surveyed readers from around the world.  Panelists and readers were asked to choose winners based on criteria that included innovation, creativity, capacity, pricing, coverage terms, claims handling, pre-loss services and financial stability.

European CEO

AGCS was named the Best D&O Policy Provider for the European CEO “Risk & Compliance Awards 2013.” AGCS was also a finalist in the Best Multinational Insurance Provider category.

European CEO determined finalists through a survey on its website. Winners are ultimately chosen by an expert panel that has a collective business journalism background of more than 200 years. The panel’s voting criteria includes transparency, compliance management, risk exposure minimization and enterprise agility.

Intelligent Insurer

Last October, AGCS was honored at the Baden Baden Reinsurance Conference by Intelligent Insurer, who named AGCS CEO Axel Theis Insurance Leader of the Year among European insurers. In addition, Allianz Group was recognized as European Insurer of the Year, Best European Property Insurer and Best European Casualty Insurer.

Intelligent Insurer editor Richard Mackillican presented Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty Board Member and Allianz Risk Transfer CEO Bill Scaldaferri with the Insurance Leader of the Year award, who accepted on behalf of Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty CEO Axel Theis (who was unable to attend). Allianz Re CEO Amer Ahmed accepted the Allianz Group awards.
