Higos extends strategic partnership with Allianz


Higos Insurance Services, has expanded its strategic partnership with Allianz Insurance.  Following a tender exercise, Allianz will provide increased support and enhanced propositions for Higos’ SME and mid-market commercial clients.

Neil Thornton, managing director at Higos, which was acquired by Global Risk Partners in 2017, said that the portfolio, which covers the majority of commercial segments, is both profitable and set for further growth.

Neil said: “We are delighted with the continued support shown for our business by Allianz and our other insurer partners, and we look forward to building strongly on existing trading relationships.”

“The Higos team is excited by the opportunity to partner with a carrier that truly understands our business, and wants to improve outcomes for clients by developing new products and services, including on the claims side, where we intend to plug into Allianz’s first class claims operation.”

Sarah Mallaby, director of broker markets at Allianz, said: “We are very pleased our existing relationship with Higos continues to develop and strengthen. Supporting high performing regional brokers that are focused on service and advice for the benefit of customers is a key element of our strategy.” 

The agreement is operational with immediate effect.
