Allianz Commercial, a division of insurance giant Allianz, caters to mid-sized businesses, large enterprises and specialist risk sectors.  

The German insurance company has been actively enhancing its services. 

Last month, Allianz announced the formation of a new in-house team dedicated to managing financial lines claims.  

This team, operating from Milton Keynes in the UK, aims to improve the claims process for Allianz’s directors and officers and professional indemnity products. 

Recently, the company closed the acquisition of Tua Assicurazioni from Assicurazioni Generali for €280m ($304.53m).  

This deal, announced in October 2023, is set to increase Allianz’s market share in the Italian P&C insurance sector by approximately one percentage point.
