Funk Alliance – Funk’s international network
The Funk Alliance is unique in the industry: as the only broker network entirely managed from Germany, we have 35 Funk offices, supported by high-calibre Funk Alliance partners around the world. With complementary skills and experience, together we create special added value for our clients.
What is the Funk Alliance?
The Funk Alliance is Funk’s globally oriented service network. The aim and task of this network is to harmonise and synchronise the insurance/risk management interests of our clients worldwide. The Funk Alliance consists of our own offices and partner organisations. It ensures the implementation of international programmes and provides professional local support in all matters of insurance management, risk management and employee benefit management. It’s about more than knowledge. It’s even about more than experience. It’s about a deep understanding of relationships and needs that has developed over more than 40 years of intensive cooperation with thousands of clients.
How is the Funk Alliance managed?
The Funk Alliance is the world’s largest international network managed centrally from Germany. The overall responsibility for the Funk Alliance, network management and all international activities lies with the International Key Account division in Hamburg, which is directly managed by one of the managing partners.
The support team for the International Key Account division comprises 45 experienced multilingual employees with different areas of specialisation, who ensure compliance with agreed service, support and best practice standards within the network. In constant dialogue with colleagues from the Funk Alliance, the Key Account Division team provides relevant information and clarifies questions concerning compliance, regulatory matters and specific local characteristics. If needed, the International Key Account division provides a direct local contact partner. A Funk Alliance employee is therefore by your side wherever local expertise is required.
