What's inside AIG Sales

All of our daily activities pursue one main goal:

The long-term successful collaboration with our customers and partners, which is based on trust, professionalism, reliability and transparency. Using our technical expertise and extensive international experience, we work with you to find new approaches and solutions.

We are not just the first point of contact for cross-sectoral projects and products; we also function as a communication channel to our multinational department when it comes to strategic collaboration issues, and as an agent between our customers and our underwriting resources.

Every day, our sales teams examine different aspects so that solutions that consider cross-sectoral interests can be developed jointly. In this way, we engage in partnership-based collaboration that contributes to profitable growth and continued business development on both sides.

For us, service is our top priority. We listen, read between the lines and take care of our customers' needs. In addition, our service portfolio also includes the coordination of technical and training events, support with claims and sales issues, and also provides information about our underwriting policy. Our sales team is also the right point of contact for issues related to responsibilities, the product portfolio or service quality. We would also be pleased to meet with you personally to discuss potential strategic collaborations.
