"We are confident that we made the right choice when, having opened an agency, we closed the deal specifically with AXA MBASK. The agency becomes an increasingly profitable business with the progress of the insurance in the country. Given the global brand and the high level of the services of AXA, we on top of that get that confidence in the insurance products that we will offer to our customers. АХА MBASK provides the full support and not only for the launch of the agency but, and more importantly, through offering a beneficial financial motivation system as well as the quality technical and underwriting support. The priority operating areas of the Khazar Agency will be the continued improvement of the efficiency of customer communications and the building up of a system to secure a high level of agency sales," commented the director of the agency Asker Ojagverdiyev.

The international experience shows that it is practically impossible to advance retail sales without agents and agencies. We have overhauled the retail sales development model in our agency and so the insurance agencies will be playing an immense role in this new model. AXA MBASK is ready to support fully the local businesses wishing to go into agency. We wish the Khazar Agency every success in their enterprise. We are certain that other agencies in Baku as well as in the provinces will follow the Khazar's example."
