  Allianz Worldwide Care Scoops Two International Industry Awards

Business Wire

DUBLIN -- July 22, 2013

Global health insurer, Allianz Worldwide Care won awards in two categories at
the prestigious Professional Adviser International Fund & Product Awards 2013.
Now in their 14^th year, the Awards were established to honour financial
services firms offering products and services across international borders.

Best in Class for Healthcare Solutions to NGO’s

Allianz Worldwide Care received the Best in Class Award for its range of
international health insurance plans designed specifically for
Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). The NGO Care plans, launched in 2012,
offer solutions for different categories of staff, region of cover and
assignment duration. There are five plans to choose from and these can include
cover for in-patient treatment, out-patient treatment, dental treatment and
evacuation or repatriation. Two of the plans can also be used as a ‘top-up’ to
the CFE (French social security for expatriates) – for French expats, this
means that their social security cover remains uninterrupted, with no waiting
periods when they return home.

The plans are sold exclusively by Antaé (formerly SANO Concept International)
and its French partner Ambrelia (formerly SANO Care) and offer NGOs a simple,
flexible and convenient solution, all from a single provider.

The award’s judging panel explained, “With very few health insurers offering
specific health insurance plans for NGOs, the judges were impressed by the
fact that Allianz Worldwide Care is delivering a specific solution to this
burgeoning sector. With around 40,000 NGOs sending staff abroad, often to
remote or poor areas, the Allianz Worldwide Care solution fulfils the needs
for vaccinations, urgent access to quality healthcare or medical evacuation on
a tailored basis. It fills a much needed gap in healthcare insurance
provision.”

Best International Private Health Insurance Provider – Highly Commended

In recognition of its continued excellence as a global health insurer, Allianz
Worldwide Care was highly commended by the judges in the category of Best
International Private Health Insurance Provider.

The judges agreed that, “Allianz Worldwide Care displays a fantastic
service-led culture that is present throughout the company and which
ultimately benefits its clients. The company also makes great use of its
website to explain healthcare insurance options and engage with its target
markets.” The judges “particularly liked the split between pre and post sales
information, which made for a clear and transparent offering”.

Claude Daboul, Director of Sales, Marketing and Operations at Allianz
Worldwide Care said, “It’s a testament to the entire team at Allianz Worldwide
Care that we have been recognised in two categories that are extremely
important to our business and indeed, the culture of our business. We are a
client-centric company that not only likes to lead the market in terms of
innovation, but also takes the time to listen to the needs of our clients.
This approach has enabled us to develop the NGO Care plans in association with
Antaé, which has a solution for every NGO, regardless of employee category,
nationality, location or duration of assignment”.

“It’s an honour to have received not one, but two industry awards as we
continually set new standards to maintain our reputation for service
excellence.”

In concluding their comments, the judges felt that “Allianz Worldwide Care’s
market coverage was in the top tier for multinationals and SMEs and that its
products have a knack of reflecting global mobility trends in health
insurance”. Their commendation included the “great strides Allianz Worldwide
Care has made in using its size and importance to educate on private health
insurance for the good of the industry overall”.

Allianz Worldwide Care, which is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, continues
to experience dynamic growth as it expands its global footprint through
partnerships in key markets such as Belgium, China and Australia, in support
of the company’s growing client base.
