Allianz wins Large General Insurer of the Year

31 August 2018

Allianz has been crowned the Large General Insurance Company of the Year for the third year in a row at the 2018 Australian Insurance Industry Awards.

The 15th annual awards, hosted in Sydney last night by the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF) and Asia Insurance Review, recognise outstanding individuals and businesses in the insurance industry.

Allianz Australia Managing Director, Richard Feledy, said he was pleased to collect the award on behalf of the entire Allianz team.

“I’m incredibly proud of the people that run and build our business every day and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for their hard work and their focus on our customers,” Richard said.

“We believe in our people, in our business and in giving our best to our millions of customers who, every day, trust us with their treasured assets.

“Winning this award three years in a row and eight out of the past 11 years shows us that we’re on the right track in our drive to innovate our business by investing in our people and our service.”

The award comes after Allianz was recognised for its outstanding claims service, winning the Gold Mansfield Award for Overall Excellence in Claims at the Mansfield Awards in July.

“Despite these successes, we are continually looking to improve and keep our customers at the heart of our business. At Allianz, we are committed to greater customer centricity and that means simplifying our products and providing greater clarity and value,” Richard said.

“Allianz Australia has built our success on our drive for innovation, our people and our customer focus. We have been insuring Australians for over 100 years and remain committed to delivering the best possible service for our customers.”

Allianz was also a finalist in the Insurance Learning Program of the Year for its submission on its ‘Building Trusted Partner Capability’ program.
