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.
