Jean-Marc Pailhol, Allianz Head of Group market management and distribution:“These emerging countries, especially Morocco, want to invest a lot in renewable energy because they have the need. They to do that. The pollution problems are there. It’s easier for them to do the jump between the current situation and the future than for major countries. They have less regulatory problems. They are less constrained. The decisions are faster. And the population is younger as well.”Jean-Marc Pailhol, Allianz Head of Group market management and distribution:“Insurance is an enabler. We are here to support these guys, to try to fund new projects. To support the project. To find new ideas. To co-create with them new solutions. And at the same time to propose to them to use our distributers. We have 250 million clients - direct and indirect.”Jean-Marc Pailhol, Allianz Head of Group market management and distribution:“All the big companies have to understand that to improve the current business is not enough. To transform the current business is not enough. When you talk about transformation I’m talking about digitalisation. We need to do more than that. We need to explore new ideas, new business models, new business sectors. To explore means to participate to that.”Florian Scheiblbrandner, Allianz Head of Global Brand Communication“So the Global Explorer Program is basically there to learn what is happening, actually. There is a lot of technology coming in terms of e-mobility, what we see with Formula E. There’s artificial intelligence. There’s mobility in terms of smart phones. And we are curious about this to understand what does it mean? How does it impact on people?”Florian Scheiblbrandner, Allianz Head of Global Brand Communication“Our business is very much to reassure people. So if we don’t know what people want to do or fear of, or that they believe is a certain risk - we cannot insure in the future.”Florian Scheiblbrandner, Allianz Head of Global Brand Communication“You would expect that Formula E is about cars racing on a race track, and this is happening for sure. But the purpose behind Formula E is much bigger. It’s really about thinking about how people should move in the future in cities.”
