The world is shaped by people who explore. People who believe there is discovery at the edge. People who step out of their comfort zone to reach new ground. The innate desire for exploration inevitably brings risks and unknowns.
It is what moved the sea explorers of the 14th century to invent insurance in the first place — the recognition that sharing risk would allow everyone to go further than they could on their own.
In the year 1890 Carl von Thieme and Wilhelm Finck founded Allianz, offering insurance to new modes of transportation. This was a time when people trusted horses more than cars. And technology would forever change the way people worked and lived. From the very beginning, Allianz believed in the courageous entrepreneurs and ideas others consider impossible.
Our history has shaped our belief: Life would be better if people had more courage, than fear.
