Allianz targets Zurich Building Guarantee customers
- Date: 04/10/2009
Allianz Insurance is targeting former Zurich Building Guarantee customers via defects insurance specialist BLP, following the Swiss insurer's decision to pull out of the market.
"BLP has launched a welcome programme to ensure Zurich's customers get the reassurance and right kind of attention they need," said Simon Main, MD of BLP.
"Our systems are in place and ready for them and the welcome programme delivers, in just one call, the right information and provides the easiest warranty set up possible for Zurich customers. BLP offers a close fit to what they've been used to when it comes to new home warranties - and we have no barriers to entry or exit, require no membership or registration fees, deposits or bonds."
Paul Smith, inherent defects manager at Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty AG, which backs BLP, said: "BLP has a strong product and a solid customer focused business and is well placed to continue its expansion into the residential inherent defects market."
Mr Main concluded: "We're making it as easy as possible for Zurich Building Guarantee customers to find the product they need. In a difficult market place, it's important that customers know they can place their trust in BLP because we'll deliver what they need and not treat them like a number."
