Operating entities (OEs) of the company in APAC comprising Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Thailand will continue to have strategic demand expertise, the company said.
This will permit the OEs to focus on their business transformation efforts, thereby offering customers increased value.
Allianz Asia Pacific regional CEO Anusha Thavarajah said: “Modernising and harmonising of our IT services into a standardised operating model is key to meeting the ambitions set out in our Pinnacle strategy.
“This takes Allianz Asia Pacific towards being a more customer-centric organisation and allows for more operational efficiency in Asia’s ever-evolving market.”
Allianz recently entered into a binding agreement to divest a 51% stake in its Saudi Arabian unit, Allianz Saudi Fransi, to Abu Dhabi National Insurance Company.
