Allianz Global Assisance UK Invests in Underwriting Team

Prior to joining Allianz Global Assistance, Scott was Senior Travel Underwriter for ACE European Group Limited, and previously the Travel Manager at Fortis Insurance. Over the course of his career, Scott has underwritten and managed insurance portfolios across the UK, Ireland and Europe, taking the lead in reviewing accounts and meeting compliance requirements.

In his new position Scott will be monitoring business performance to assist the finance and sales teams, with a focus on a balance between returning bottom line undewriting profit and commercial awarness.

Speaking about his new role, Scott comments, “When customers buy a travel insurance policy, they look for three things; price, cover and most importantly, peace of mind, so when a crisis occurs during their holiday, they can turn to people who have the expertise to assist them. The outstanding position Allianz Global Assistance has around the world provides a strong foundation that is at the heart of its success as a travel brand. This, coupled with our expertise in other areas of insurance, makes Allianz Global Assistance an attractive proposition for all our existing and future clients. I’m looking forward to being part of this ongoing success.”

Barry Smith, UK Underwriting Manager for Allianz Global Assistance comments, “Scott is a highly experienced underwriter, with extensive knowledge of the travel insurance sector. He has proven capabilities in providing profitable underwriting that best fit the products and customers. In his new position, Scott will play a key role in the continued success and profitability of our Corporate and Travel division, by ensuring that new and existing business pricing proposals meet our strategic objectives.”
