Dawes Underwriting Australia Pty Ltd1 is pleased to announce a new partnership with Allianz Australia Insurance Limited (Allianz).

Under an Underwriting Agency agreement, Allianz will become the new underwriter for Dawes motor vehicle insurance products supporting its portfolio of exotic and prestige motor vehicles. This agreement will apply to new business and renewal transactions from 1 May 2017.

The new partnership replaces the previous agreement that Dawes held with Great Lakes Insurance SE trading as Great Lakes Australia.

Simon Lightbody, CEO Steadfast Underwriting Agencies Holdings Pty Ltd, said, “We are delighted to partner with an underwriter of Allianz’s standing and proven expertise in motor vehicle insurance. We believe the continued focus of Dawes providing exemplary service and innovative solutions to brokers, backed by Allianz’s capital strength, is a dynamic combination that will benefit the Australian broker market.”

Allianz is the largest property and casualty insurer in the world and one of the largest insurers in Australia. It has a wealth of local expertise backed by a global reach and breadth of resources.

David Hosking, Allianz Australia’s Chief General Manager, Broker and Agency said “We are excited to strengthen our relationship with the Steadfast Group with the addition of our new underwriting agency partner Dawes, and look forward to a successful partnership that will deliver profitable growth to both parties in the future.”
