The insurer has also extended its list of approved primary insurers

Allianz Commercial has revamped its excess liability cover in a move to grow its portfolio across casualty lines.

The new offering will allow brokers to buy higher limits of indemnity than their current liability insurer might provide and enable them to top-up the total level of cover.

The products being offered include excess employers, public and products liability, and 6.5.1 which covers non-negligent liability.

The policies can be tailored for one-off projects, short term contracts or written as an annual policy.

As part of the revamp, Allianz’s branch property and casualty underwriters will also now be able to trade the excess cover locally.

Allianz added that it had also made changes to the underwriting process, to make it quicker and easier for brokers to do business.

Policyholders will also have access to Allianz’s claims experts in its dedicated major loss team.

Allianz has also extended its list of approved primary insurers.

Allianz Commercial casualty account manager Stuart Toal said: “We believe that with the growth of personal injury claims in the UK, the need to ensure that all businesses have sufficient levels of liability cover has never been greater.

“Contractual requirements frequently demand significant levels of liability insurance, and can impose additional responsibilities on the insured. We believe that both small and large businesses need to be thinking about these risks.”
