About our joint venture with LV=

In December 2017, Liverpool Victoria Friendly Society (“LV=”) and Allianz Insurance plc (“Allianz”) began a strategic partnership  through a joint venture (Liverpool Victoria General Insurance Group (“LV=GI”)) under the LV= brand name with a view to LV=GI becoming the UK’s third largest personal lines insurer.

As part of this new partnership, LV= GI acquired the right to issue new business invitations to Allianz’s personal home and motor insurance customers via their brokers. In turn, Allianz acquired the right to offer LV=’s commercial lines customers new business invitations via their brokers.

Allianz's existing commercial lines business will not be affected by the joint venture.
