Key information

In line with the latest UK government guidance regarding the Coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic, we've updated our information and FAQs.

At Allianz we work with a huge variety of businesses and individuals, each exposed to uniquely different risks and dealing with individual challenges and circumstances. The risks faced by businesses don’t stop with COVID-19 and we’re committed to continue providing your customers with the insurance cover they need and purchased, accepting that the nature of their business may still be temporarily changed.

The FCA Test Case Appeal concluded on 15 January 2021. Although Allianz was not a defendant in the case we welcome the clarity the judgment provides and have continued to make payments on claims where we believe there is valid cover. Allianz has contacted all affected customers regarding how the judgment affects their claim.

Where site surveys can be done in a COVID-19 Secure manner, customer and employee safety remains our highest priority. We’re taking control measures to keep our Loss Control Engineers safe and mitigate the risk of spreading Covid-19. Read our Guide for more information.

Remote surveys

Where our Loss Control Engineers can support your customers and obtain sufficient underwriting information, surveys will be conducted remotely through video or telephone conference calls. To aid these discussions, your customer will be invited to provide information, example documentation and site photos / videos before or during the discussion.

Where a remote survey is completed, a follow-up site visit may be required when circumstances permit.

Site surveys

If a site visit is deemed necessary, this will only carried be out in agreement with your customer. Specific topics such as social distancing, nature of the visit, agenda and timings etc. will be outlined by email ahead of the visit and our Loss Control Engineer will avoid setting up visits that coincide with start / finish times and / or shift changes.

We’ll also request that your customer informs us of any Covid-19 related precautions they’ve implemented that apply during the visit.
