Ayleen Frete

My first steps in insurance were at Allianz in Munich in 2008, after working at Siemens in Business Development and consulting companies in accounting in Madrid, where I was born to a multicultural family with roots in Belgium & Spain, and studied at a British school obtaining my A-levels and a Bsc in Business Administration & Management at university.

I speak fluent German, French, English and Spanish, as well as some Italian & Hebrew. I also obtained a Diploma in International Business Management in Rennes, and a M.A in Psychology at the Ludwig Maximilian University Munich, publishing several research papers in the topics of technology-enhanced collaborative learning, and studying remotely the Advanced Certificate of Insurance of the UK Chartered Insurance Institute. I moved to London in 2016 after living in Munich, having worked in different roles within the Allianz Group in the areas of sales & marketing, market strategy, broker distribution, project management and business analysis. In London I have focused my career around multinational insurance, spending my time working with clients, brokers & insurance fronting partners worldwide to structure and implement global insurance programs for clients of more than EUR500m revenue at Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS) and now leading a team of more than 30 people. I enjoy public speaking and have represented AGCS speaking at various insurance industry conferences and panels around the world such as RIMS, NARIM, ANRA, ISIRMA, and Commercial Risk, on topics around Brexit and multinational insurance.

I have recently been part of the Advisory Board for The Women’s Insurance Network (TWIN) representing AGCS as a sponsor, dedicated to developing senior and upcoming female talent in insurance by organising insurance-related conferences. In my spare time I enjoy music and art, and I’m a Board Trustee at the South London Community Music charity, raising money for different causes by performing jazz, contemporary and classical music in London. I also volunteer remotely for the Spanish charity Alianza Solidaria, carrying out document translation services for humanitarian projects worldwide, focused on helping children in developing countries and on disaster & humanitarian relief.
