Allianz Insurance plc Voted Commercial Insurer of the Year!

LANCASTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2010) -

Attention Business Editor

Business insurance specialist Premierline Direct is delighted to announce that its parent company, Allianz Insurance plc, has been named Commercial Lines Insurer of the Year, 2010.

Allianz scooped the prestigious Insurance Times award after being voted into first place by a highly respected and diverse panel of judges, all experts from the insurance industry.

Allianz provides a wide range of business insurance solutions and Premierline Direct is a key part of its commercial offering, as one of the UK's leading direct business insurance providers.

Looking for excellence in the highly competitive field of Commercial Lines Insurance, the 19-strong judging panel's brief was to identify a company with the right combination of initiative, innovation, great service and, of course, outstanding products.

Premierline Direct Managing Director, Chris Little, said: "Our customers have long appreciated that we're the best at what we do and it's great that experts from within the industry agree.

"We do what we do so well because we make sure we put our customers first and adapt quickly to a fast-changing commercial environment. We understand businesses and that's why our clients see us as very much as partners. We were the UK's first direct operation to focus solely on business insurance and understand our customers' needs. That's what makes us unique.

"This is a fantastic achievement and reflects brilliantly on all of our hardworking team who can all take great pride in the award".
