Allianz strengthens its broker proposition with two new initiatives

Posted: 15 March 2021


Allianz has revealed two exciting initiatives to coincide with a broker facing campaign focussing on the benefits its brokers can enjoy through working in partnership with Allianz. 
As the Worldwide Insurance Partner for the Olympic and Paralympic Movements, Allianz has pledged £100,000 to the Allianz Sports Fund in 2021 to offer financial support in the form of grants between £500-£3,000 for community sports in the UK. This new initiative will allow brokers to support their local grassroots sports club by putting them forward to receive a grant from Allianz. Awards are to help sports clubs continue to provide opportunities within their local community and ease the financial impact as a result of coronavirus. Applications will only be accepted from clubs that have been nominated by one of Allianz’s broker partners. The first nomination period will be open from 15 March to 28 May with a second nomination period to follow later in the year.
Furthermore, Allianz is extending its strong engagement in the area of Mental Health by providing free Mental Health First Aider courses to brokers through a partnership with MHFA England. The course equips individuals with knowledge surrounding mental health and develops their skills to support colleagues, employees or loved ones. This is designed to help Allianz’s brokers establish a network of Mental Health First Aiders in their business to support both professional and personal resilience.
Both initiatives are the latest additions in a series of new broker benefits that also include LinkedIn learning licenses for brokers and the launch of a new Broker Apprenticeship programme earlier in the year. 
A new campaign under the headline “Strong Partners for what’s ahead” will showcase these and other offerings from Allianz and illustrate what can be achieved together through working in partnership. 

Simon McGinn, general manager, Commercial and Personal said:

We’re proud to be launching these fantastic new initiatives. Evidenced by our partnerships with the Rugby Football Union (RFU) championing women’s rugby, the Olympic and Paralympic Movements as well as leading mental health charity, Mind, we work with organisations that are making a difference. So we want to work with our brokers on initiatives that develop resilience at an individual, company and societal level too.

“Alongside these, our new campaign wraps up everything we offer our brokers, but also highlights the important role that our brokers play in delivering for our customers and in shaping the future of our industry and society overall.
