Sydney, 10 October 2014

Allianz has been announced as a finalist in three award categories at this year’s Australian Banking and Finance Insurance Awards - the categories of General Insurance Company of the Year, Innovation of the Year and Marketing Campaign of the Year.

This year’s award finalists comprise more than 30 of Australia’s leading insurance companies representing eleven award categories with the winners to be revealed at a gala event in Sydney on 16 October 2014.

The awards, hosted by Australian Financial Publications, recognise the insurance industry’s commitment to delivering the highest standards of excellence, professionalism and performance.

Commenting on the announcement, Managing Director, Niran Peiris said, “Allianz is proud to be shortlisted for the General Insurance Company of the Year, Innovation of the Year and Marketing Campaign of the Year Awards. In a challenging market environment, combined with modest economic growth, innovation and marketing are important differentiators and I am especially pleased that the efforts of the team at Allianz have been recognised by the Award judges.”

“Being a finalist in a record-breaking three categories this year is recognition of Allianz’s dedication to constant improvement and innovation. Once again being shortlisted for the General Insurance Company of the Year is further recognition of the exceptional service that our employees strive to provide to our partners and customers. At Allianz, we are focused on delivering tailored, flexible and competitive products and providing our partners and policyholders with the best possible experience at all times, but particularly when they make a claim, when it matters most,” Mr Peiris said.
