Allianz celebrated the successes of its recent intake of broker scholars, by holding a graduation event at M by Montcalm, London.

Hosted by Simon McGinn, general manager Commercial and Personal, the evening recognised the achievements of 22 scholars who have completed Allianz’s award-winning Scholarship Programme, which supports brokers to achieve their CII Diploma in Insurance within 18 months.

One scholar, Eleanor Chisnall from Lark Insurance, had extra reason to celebrate as, in addition to securing a distinction in each examination undertaken, she has been awarded as the top scholar.

Simon McGinn, Allianz, said:

“We’d like to congratulate Eleanor on her amazing achievement which is a testament to how hard she has worked during the last 18 months. This is great recognition for her efforts and demonstrates the quality of the tuition Allianz provides through our Scholarship Programme.”

“The scholarship programme continues to be extremely successful and we remain committed to investing in the personal development of brokers and raising professional standards across the industry. Thank you to all of the scholars’ sponsors for their support during the programme and congratulations to all of our new graduates; we look forward to continuing our relationship with you through the Scholarship alumni membership group.”

Since 2012, more than 200 brokers have enrolled in the Allianz Scholarship Programme, benefitting from first-class tuition and networking opportunities including an exclusive alumni membership group.
