While seeking to enhance investment outcomes through technology, we believe human insight and connection are equally essential to successful asset management.
The goal: to find the optimal solution for your needs – and work closely with you to evolve your strategy as those needs change. That way, we live and breathe active asset management.
Active is the most important word in our vocabulary.
It doesn’t just describe how we manage portfolios at Allianz Global Investors.
It defines our entire approach as a business, from the enthusiasm and
entrepreneurial spirit of our employees, to our self-critical assessment of performance.
Active is how we create and share value with clients.
We believe in solving, not selling, and in adding value beyond pure economic gain.
We invest for the long term, employing our innovative investment expertise and global resources.
Our goal is to ensure a superior experience for our clients, wherever they are based
and whatever their investment needs.
Active is: Allianz Global Investors
Our corporate philosophy
Through our active approach, we cut through the noise with conviction, and elevate the asset management experience for our clients. That’s why our heart beats for active asset management.

The key to providing excellent service is understanding each client’s unique circumstances and acting in their best interests. With our consultative approach and more than 680 relationship managers globally, our goal is to offer solutions that truly address our clients’ needs.
While delivering alpha remains a core objective, creating value goes beyond pure investment returns. Clients want a relationship that generates value for them, every step of the way.
That’s why we are on a journey to turn the asset management experience into a mutually beneficial relationship: with innovative pricing models, transparency and customized products - we build new solutions on our clients’ terms.
We believe this requires us to deliver on four critical dimensions...
Our parent company, Allianz SE, is one of the leading financial services provider worldwide. Founded in 1890, Allianz has more than 125 years of asset management expertise to its name. Back in 1998, Allianz saw the opportunity to create a unique asset management business by integrating all of its major asset management units under one roof.
Since then, Allianz Global Investors has grown organically and through a series of strategic acquisitions. In 2012, a new set-up for Allianz's asset management division was established to recognise two discrete investment management businesses, one of which is Allianz Global Investors.
