Allianz to provide CTP in South Australia

7 December 2015

Allianz has welcomed the South Australian Government’s announcement that it will become one of four providers of CTP insurance in South Australia from 1 July 2016.

Allianz has more than 25 years’ experience underwriting CTP insurance in other jurisdictions and is one of Australia’s leading motor accident and personal injury insurance specialists.

Allianz Managing Director, Niran Peiris, said “Allianz is pleased that the South Australian Government has demonstrated trust in our capability, knowledge and experience to deliver competitive CTP insurance products to South Australian motorists.”

“Allianz’s existing South Australian CTP claims operation, plus the location of a national insurance sales and claims processing centre in Adelaide is further commitment to our employment in the State. We welcome the opportunity to further strengthen our presence in the State and continue to serve the needs of South Australian motorists and those injured in motor vehicle accidents,” Mr Peiris said.

“Allianz’s key focus over the months ahead will be to ensure our future South Australian CTP customers experience a smooth transition to the new Scheme,” he said.
