We started our sustainable investing journey over 20 years ago and were among the first 50 asset managers to sign the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) in 2007. We believe that sustainable investing can generate positive financial outcomes not just for our clients, but for the community at large.
Given the diversity of investors’ objectives and requirements we provide sustainable investing processes with a broad range of approaches, adaptable to different levels of ESG incorporation and client preferences. These enhance our clients’ investment decisions while helping create benefits for society as a whole.

AllianzGI provides ESG risk-focused products and a range of Sustainable product categories that cater for our client’s sustainability objectives and preferences. All asset classes are ESG risk assessed.
