Wrisk and Allianz Automotive team up

New car owners will soon be able to drive their new acquisitions off the forecourts of more than 40 brands across the UK with an automotive insurance policy purchased on the mobile platform of insurtech company Wrisk. 

Wrisk has signed an agreement with Allianz Automotive to jointly offer new insurance products on its platform at the point of sale at the dozens of automotive brands with which the insurer partners.

The partnership will initially focus on the UK, but further products based on the agility and flexibility inherent in Wrisk’s subscription service are planned.

Stephan Ruby, chief sales officer of Allianz Automotive, commented: “The partnership will be a catalyser for digitalisation and simplicity. For Allianz Automotive, partnering with an insurtech like Wrisk gives a tremendous opportunity to offer customer-centric solutions in a transparent and simple way, which is in line with the overall Allianz strategy.”

Niall Barton, chief executive officer and co-founder of Wrisk, added: “We’re big believers in the insurance industry’s potential for innovation. Working with Allianz Automotive has been really rewarding thanks to their agility and commitment to deliver radically improved solutions for customers.”

“This is a prime example of Wrisk’s strategy to develop collaborations with global insurers who have particular dominance in vertical sectors, where together we can unlock new opportunities for them and their B2B2C partners through a mobile-first, connected customer experience.”
