Omniasig operates in the non-life segment and offers a broad portfolio of property and casualty products that is primarily focused on motor vehicle insurance. The merger with BCR Non-life that was completed in May 2012 combined the distribution power of the two companies.

In 2012, Omniasig introduced a new insurance product to the market specifically for small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) that is aimed at satisfying the requirements of service and commercial businesses. The product offers comprehensive insurance coverage ranging all the way from building, business interruption, machinery and casualty insurance to general liability insurance. Policy writing was also optimised and greatly simplified for the customer, and policies can be easily viewed using an online service portal.

Asirom has been a member of Vienna Insurance Group since 2007 and operates in the life and non-life segments of the Romanian insurance market. It has an outstanding regional distribution network of 150 branch offices. Its market share of approximately 7.3% makes Asirom one of the top five companies in the market.

In addition to introducing many new products in 2012, Asirom also modified its motor vehicle own-damage insurance to meet changes in market conditions and, therefore, customer needs. Basic coverage was expanded to include expense reimbursement for towing and breakdown service, and a replacement vehicle.

Asirom received an award for the best insurance company in the non-life segment in 2012. Granted by the insurance magazine "PRIMM – Insurance & Pensions Magazine", the award is confirmation of the company's commitment, and strengthens Asirom's image for the long term.
