Allianz Cornhill has dropped Capita Insurance Services from its commercial property loss adjusting panel.

The insurer decided to retain Cunningham Lindsey, GAB Robins and Davies Group for commercial property as part of a larger reorganisation of the claims department.

Allianz Cornhill technical claims manager Bob Rabbitts said: "We found that the three loss adjusters gave us everything we needed."

As revealed in Insurance Times in August, Allianz Cornhill is set to reduce the number of claims offices it operates from 12 to seven, while moving some loss adjusting functions in house.

The company plans to develop a team of 17 site investigators to work throughout the country, concentrating on liability cases within motoring and casualty.
