Allianz Global Investors – Why Work For Us?

Introducing Allianz Global Investors: Who we are and how we help our clients

Diversified active investment manager with a strong parent

Strength and stability are vital in uncertain times. We are an active investment manager servicing both institutional and retail clients around the world. Our business is diversified across equity, fixed-income, alternatives and multi-asset strategies and diversified by region. This solid foundation, together with the support of the world’s largest insurer, helps us toward our goal of developing and maintaining long-term relationships with our clients.
Global investment and research capabilities
To create sustainable outperformance, in-depth market knowledge is essential. We have a global research platform that both informs our investment decisions and helps our clients understand the markets. Built around global centres of investment expertise, we can leverage the best talent in a given location while fostering independent thinking across asset classes. We focus on distinct areas where we believe we can excel, helping us align our strengths with our clients’ goals.
Consultative local delivery
The key to providing excellent service is understanding each client’s unique circumstances and acting in their best interests. With our consultative approach we aim to offer solutions that truly address our clients’ needs. Our investment teams are located near the markets in which they invest, because we believe that local knowledge is key to creating a sustainable advantage.
A culture of risk management
Risk is both a challenge and an opportunity, which is why risk management is embedded in the way we manage and monitor investments. In fact, our parent company has been doing this successfully for more than 120 years; it is deeply ingrained in what we do. We aim to create portfolios that are risk-optimized and to offer customized risk-management solutions, products and insights covering the risk-reward spectrum.

Understand. Act. 

At Allianz Global Investors, we follow a two-word philosophy: 

Understand. Act. This is as powerful as it is succinct. It describes how we look at the world and how we behave. It signals our belief that with so much information available, the best way to gain an advantage is through understanding. To this, we add a commitment to taking action that capitalises on potential and drives performance.

To sustain our advantage, we have organised ourselves so that our understanding flows fast and continuously amongst our colleagues and clients around the globe. The result, we believe, is that we are well-placed to identify, communicate and seize opportunities.

Our culture and our values

Our culture is built on the need for openness. We respect and support the national and cultural diversity within our offices around the world in an environment that thrives on interaction, teamwork and knowledge sharing. We believe this delivers a better understanding of companies and the markets they operate in.

Human relationships are crucial to the success of our business. Our determination to understand our markets better, and to act promptly to make the most of all the opportunities we discover has shaped our culture and our values.

We are passionate about the business of investing and finding potential where others do not. That means we are committed to doing more for our clients, while seeking to inspire both our clients and our colleagues with our passion for what we do.

We are committed to delivering excellence and we know that is a demanding, constantly changing benchmark, so we are continually striving to improve, while seeking to anticipate our client’s individual needs.

We act with integrity, putting our clients’ needs first, behaving in an open and transparent way and treating people fairly.

And we value respect; we embrace difference and diversity, and recruit our colleagues from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines. While rewarding individual performance, we also recognise the value of teamwork.

At Allianz Global Investors our people enjoy motivating, fulfilling careers.

If you’re looking for a fast-paced working environment, you’re determined to cultivate and expand your talents, and you believe in always putting the customer first, then we’re the right place for you.We will work with you to design your own optimum career, develop your personal growth, and align your achievements with your ambitions.
