About Allianz Global Investors:
Allianz Global Investors is a global asset management company which is owned by Allianz Asset Management AG, which in turn is owned by the German insurance company Allianz SE.
As a leading active asset manager with over 600 investment professionals in 20 offices worldwide, we manage €578 billion in assets for individuals, families, and institutions. Active is the most important word in our vocabulary.
Our parent company, Allianz SE, is one of the leading financial services providers worldwide. Founded in 1890, Allianz has almost 130 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.
