Aktiv Assekuranz Makler GmbH, your insurance broker for the transport and logistics industry, is the first insurance broker to offer a "stand-alone" insurance solution for insolvency proceedings

Insolvency Proceedings Policy as an independent insurance policy available.

October 2015

Aktiv Assekuranz Makler GmbH, your insurance broker for the transport and logistics industry, extends its product range: the Aktiv Insolvency Proceedings Policy (Aktiv Insolvenzanfechtungs-Versicherung AIV) is something of a novelty on the German insurance market.

It is market standard that an insolvency proceedings insurance can only be included in the commercial credit insurance as an additional module. Plus, market standard allows to cover only for challenges that are registered as claims under the commercial credit policy. Whereas the Aktiv Insolvency Proceedings Policy is a sole policy that provides coverage for any challenges independent from a commercial credit insurance and the registration of claims hereto.

Peter Skalicky, member of the management board and head of property insurance at Aktiv Assekuranz Makler GmbH: "Our Insolvency Proceedings Policy has been specifically developed for insolvency claims. A commercial credit insurance is not required. That means that our customers only pay for the coverage they really need".

The background to this policy is: in the course of insolvency procedures, insolvency administrators often approach former business partners of the insolvent company. Even the granting of instalment payments on services and deliveries may result in the insolvency administrator's allegation that the business partner was aware of the insolvency and wilfully disadvantaged other creditors.

By applicable law (and the insolvency regulation in particular) these facts establish a legitimate action and the application of a so-called "avoidance due to wilful discrimination of creditors" (insolvency regulation section 133 (1)).

With its Aktiv Insolvency Proceedings Policy, Aktiv Assekuranz offers an individual insurance solution that will cover (up to the stipulated sum insured) for any payments resulting from claims that have been finally determined by court order - provided that the corresponding invoice has been issued in Germany for a business partner within the EU. The Aktiv Insolvency Proceedings Policy also includes the service of specialized lawyers for the rejection of unjustified claims.
