Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty Launches Innovative Cyber and Professional Liability Coverage in North America

Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty® (AGCS) is introducing its next generation cyber and professional liability coverage product called ACCEPT Protect®designed exclusively for the North American market. Featuring a streamlined form structure with flexible terms, ACCEPT Protect is the first of its kind, offering individual or blended solutions for emerging threats across the Cyber, Media, Technology and Miscellaneous Errors & Omissions (E&O) markets.

The cyber risk is complex and ever-changing, with attacks and incidents increasing at exponential rates and costs climbing into the multimillions.

Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE Announces Executive Changes

Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE (AGCS) announced that Paul O’Neill will become Chief Underwriting Officer Specialty, with effect from October 1, 2016, subject to regulatory approval. As a new Board of Management member for AGCS and based in London, he will oversee AGCS’ business in the Energy, Marine, Aviation and Entertainment lines of business. Currently AGCS’ Global Head of Marine and Energy, Mr. O’Neill succeeds Bill Scaldaferri who, as previously announced, takes over as AGCS Board responsibility for North America from Art Moossmann as of July 1. This move will allow Mr. Scaldaferri to focus on AGCS’s North American business specifically, which reflects the growing strategic importance of that region within AGCS, post the integration of Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company. Simon Buxton, currently AGCS Global Head of Reinsurance, will succeed Mr. O’Neill as Global Head of Marine and Energy on October 1, 2016. He will remain based in the London office of AGCS, and a successor for his current Reinsurance responsibilities will be announced in due course. With his core focus on the North American market, Mr. Scaldaferri will also hand over his current Board responsibility for Allianz Risk Transfer (ART) to Hartmut Mai, who is Chief Underwriting Officer Corporate for AGCS. This move reflects the increasingly close interactions between the traditional Corporate lines of business of AGCS and ART’s Corporate Solutions division, which offers specialized alternative risk transfer and multi-line insurance solutions for companies. Paul O’Neill has been Global Head of Marine and Energy since 2014 as well as Global Head of Energy, a role which he has held since 2005. A chemical engineer by training, he initially worked in the energy industry prior to moving into the insurance sector where he performed risk engineering reviews for the London insurance market. While working at Lloyd’s, he transitioned into underwriting and later joined Allianz as the Regional Manager for Energy in Singapore in 2003. Simon Buxton has over 20 years of experience in the reinsurance industry and took over the position of AGCS Global Head of Reinsurance at the start of 2013. Prior to joining AGCS, he was Head of Reinsurance Solutions for Allianz Risk Transfer for five years. Before joining Allianz Risk Transfer, he qualified as an actuary and worked in the insurance industry in a range of consulting and underwriting positions in Bermuda, Argentina and the UK.
