Allianz is one of the world’s leading insurance companies, operating globally in over 80 different countries.
More than just covering a wide range of prevalent insurance models, Allianz set up its very own art insurance. Over the years, the services granted by Allianz ArtPrivat have provided a strong basis for the company’s close collaborations with international museums, galleries and auction houses. Outside those institutional structures, Allianz ArtPrivat offers a tailored made insurance for individual art lovers. A team of experts assists to evaluate all artifacts from paintings and sculptures to antiques and carpets and advises clients in terms of preservation, restoration, storage or transport - helping to protect what’s most valuable to every collector.

The company’s sense of the love and passion of collecting has further lead them to partake in the world of classic cars, supporting and exhibiting Stuttgart’s car fair Retro Classic and setting up additional insurances packages for historic cars. Allianz’s eye for aesthetics and art is firmly integrated in their divers cultural engagement. Throughout the years the company has continuously supported cultural festivals such as the Bayreuther Festspiele or Stuttgart’s Jazz Open. More recently Allianz’s engagement in visual arts has taken on a pivotal role in the company’s CSR program. Besides supporting events such as the Kunstarealfest and the annual PIN-Fest, recent collaborations include their prime partnership with Munich’s Highlights Art Fair, a cooperation with the German magazine Art Value as well as their collaboration with the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, at which they currently sponsor the entrance fee for visitors every Wednesday of the week.

Since January 2014 Allianz has teamed up with Independent Collectors, becoming the most recent edition to our Global Partners. From now on, Allianz and IC will join forces in conducting research that will help us realize pioneering projects beneficial to the ones who love and value art just as much as we do.
