Allianz Group will sell a majority stake in its Saudi Arabia business to Abu Dhabi National Insurance Company in a bid to streamline operations in the Middle East.

The Munich-based insurer and asset manager said Thursday that it has entered a binding agreement to sell its 51% stake in Allianz Saudi Fransi to the United Arab Emirates-based insurance provider. Financial details were not disclosed.

Allianz expects the transaction to close in a few months and said the group's solvency nor its cash position will be affected. Employees nor customers of Allianz Saudi Fransi will be affected by the transaction, Allianz said.
