Cross Border

Clients with Cross Border needs are an important and growing segment for the mid-corporate commercial insurance market.

Cross Border Solutions

We offer three Cross Border solutions for UK registered companies with assets or liabilities overseas:

Standalone Local Policy

For companies with large or complex overseas risks, our preferred approach is to issue Standalone Local Policies in the territory where those risks are situated, ensuring guaranteed compliance with local mandatory requirements.

Our international commercial network can now serve more than 160 countries. Access to our international commercial network can be arranged via your underwriters.

For further information please contact your local Allianz business developer or find a branch.

Benefits

  • Offers your client the possibility of accessing special local covers, such as Natural Catastrophe funds, Workers Compensation and Terrorism
  • Issued in the local language
  • The policy will be processed locally, meeting all local  fiscal requirements
  • A local broker can be recommended by Allianz in countries where there is a local requirement to have one
  • Local risk management, insurance surveys and advice services can be provided.

Claims

  • Notification and handling will be in the overseas territory where the claim event occurred
  • Settlements paid directly to the local company where the loss takes place
  • Claims can be paid to the local subsidiary and in local currency alleviating any exchange rate losses.

International Products

For companies with incidental overseas exposures, we have developed two International products.

International Commercial Select

For clients who are domiciled in the UK, but also have operations, or own premises or assets elsewhere.
