Allianz Commercial has introduced new professional services proposition in the UK broker market, in a bid to expand its presence in the mid-corporate sector.

The new proposition offers comprehensive range of cover extensions and sector-specific services that will meet the needs of professional businesses such as accountants, management consultants and architects.

Allianz Commercial underwriting and technical director Neil Clutterbuck said: "Professional Services are a critical and growing part of the UK economy, reflecting the shift we have seen towards knowledge based professions.

"Following detailed research we have developed a flexible customer proposition that can be tailored to meet the needs of individual businesses, offering property and casualty insurances and options to include financial lines, brand protection, and trade credit."

The proposition provides a range of free automatic cover enhancements, including computer e-risks, plans, models and drawings, fine art, antiques and collectibles, business travel and personal accident.

Its discounted optional covers include directors and officers and professional indemnity.

Aimed at businesses with a premium between £10,000 and £100,000, the proposition will be available to brokers and their clients from Allianz’s 14 nationwide branches.

Allianz’s other mid-corporate offerings include wholesale and retail, general manufacturing and metalworking and precision engineering.
