AGCS CEO Joachim Mueller says the plan is aimed at regaining its market leadership and profitability in the corporate and specialty insurance segments.
He says the business will achieve the goals through improved technical capabilities across its core underwriting and claims functions, streamlining of processes and enhancing of current distribution and sales function.
It will also invest in digitalisation to strengthen its core business and customer offerings.
“We will now focus our entire business under a new strategic direction,” AGCS CEO Joachim Mueller said.
