Our Firm

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.

Our History

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.
