From mid-2024, the policies will be rolled out in phases and Dutch customers will be able to go to ING to take out auto, van and corporate and professional liability insurance. Taking out Allianz Direct business insurance will be a fully digital process, where customers can quickly and easily take out insurance through ING’s app or website.
Philipp Kroetz, CEO of Allianz Direct: “The partnership with ING marks a huge step in our journey to make our Allianz Direct products and services available to a wider audience across Europe. With ING, the leading digital bank in the Netherlands, we have found a strong strategic partner to make this happen. Together we strive to offer the most competitive digital solution, with first-class products, competitive rates, an excellent customer experience and leading technological capabilities.”
Joos Louwerier, CEO of Allianz Benelux: “We are ready to contribute to this new partnership with our expertise in SME products and services. Our teams are happy to take on the challenge of developing an ‘execution only’ insurance proposition in the bancassurance channel. The cooperation with ING will strengthen Allianz’s market approach in the small business segment in the Netherlands.”
“As an entrepreneur you want to spend as much time as possible running your company, with your risks carefully covered. The collaboration with Allianz Direct enables us to offer entrepreneurs high-quality insurances at a competitive price, against good conditions. This way our customers can do business without worries, while being more financially resilient in the event of a setback”, says Laurens de Vos, Head of Business Banking at ING in the Netherlands.
