Allianz is going on an acquisition hunt.
It’s going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day!
They’re not scared.

Uh oh… an insurtech!
Will it fit the culture? Can it keep up?
Can’t go over it, can’t go under it, let’s go through it.
Swishy swashy, swishy swashy!

Oh no… a composite!
Can they complement each other? Will synergies work?

Splash splosh, splash splosh!

Can it help in a market it doesn’t cover?

Squelch squerch, squelch squerch!

Stumble trip, tiptoe, tiptoe!
What’s that? Technology, policies, customers…
It must be an acquisition.
Quick, run! Swishy swashy, splosh squerch – phew!
