LONDON (Reuters) - German insurer Allianz ALVG.DE is preparing to wind down Iran-related business due to possible U.S. sanctions, a spokesman said on Tuesday.
“We are analyzing our portfolio to identify Iran-related business,” he said in an e-mailed statement.
“This analysis is ongoing and we are developing wind-down plans for relevant business to ensure appropriate termination within the defined periods.”
Allianz’s Iran business was “totally minimal”, the spokesman said, adding that the insurer was also “waiting for and will consider any guidance that the EU and the German government may provide”.
