Linking insurance solutions and capital markets
Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty's (AGCS) Capital Solutions team focuses on the Insurance Linked Securities (ILS) market. They specialize in structuring insurance risks into a form acceptable to capital market investors. They do this by linking insurance solutions and capital markets to transfer risk for the benefit of customers, insurers, and investors.

We focus on transforming insurance risks driven by events such as earthquakes, hurricanes or floods into investment products. We do this by transferring risk out of the traditional insurance sector into the capital markets for investors seeking alternative asset classes.

We act as both structurer and sponsor of Catastrophe Bonds, broking private placements between Allianz and capital market investors. We also act as a transformer between financial and insurance execution formats and as an investor.
