Allianz was established in Berlin in 1890 as a transport and accident insurer and by 1893 was moving into international markets with the opening of a London office. By 1915, Allianz is in the USA, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Italy, Belgium, France and the Balkans. And by the 1970s, Allianz became the largest insurer in Europe.
To ensure our ability to act internationally, the holding company Allianz AG facilitated a wave of mergers, including Cornhill Insurance PLC, which became part of the Allianz Group in 1986. From the 1990s, and in response to the globalisation of financial markets, we diversified our activities, moving into asset management and banking.
Today, we’re one of the biggest companies in the world. You may have come across Allianz before through one of our sponsorships with Saracens, Formula 1 or Allianz Arena.
Our history is an important part of who we are today, and we continue to look at new and exciting ways in which we can grow and develop our brand and support our customers.
Allianz and our people have won a number of prestigious corporate and individual industry awards. Highlights for 2015 include winning Best Customer Service Initiative - CII Public Interest Awards; Marketing Campaign of the Year (Brand) - British Insurance Awards; and Rising Star Award and Young Underwriter of the Year for two of our colleagues awarded by the Post. Of course, in 2014, we were awarded General Insurer of the Decade at the British Insurance Awards.
Equality and Fairness
We welcome and embrace diversity. At Allianz, managing diversity goes far beyond equal opportunities and employment laws. It’s about recognising, understanding, valuing and respecting difference. It’s about making the effort to appreciate that people in the workplace are from different backgrounds – cultural, ethnic, race and gender – and of different religions, nationalities, ages and abilities. The variety of perspectives that individuals bring, make us the successful global organisation we are today.
Diversity is all about appreciating everyone’s contribution. With a zero tolerance policy on discrimination, we pride ourselves on a workplace where everyone is treated with value and respect.
