Allianz response

Author: Allianz, Published on: 5 April 2016

  • We appreciate reports creating an awareness for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) topics amongst investors...The investment exposures, reported in the Dirty Profits Report, do not correspond with our own figures.
  • The reported investment figures refer to our proprietary assets (Allianz insurance assets), as well as to our third party assets, which our asset managers PIMCO and AllianzGI manage on behalf of their asset management clients. PIMCO and AllianzGI are guided by the investment demands of their clients and fulfillment of their fiduciary duty. Both have signed the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and integrate ESG aspect into their investment analysis and decision making...
  • As part of our risk diversification strategy we also consider the integration of ESG aspects into our investments as highly important to achieve long-term attractive returns for our insurance clients.
  • For our proprietary assets (Allianz Insurance Assets) we apply a systematic ESG approach, which we have developed throughout the past years and are continuously improving.
