What we do

We offer a diversified range of active investment strategies across four main pillars: equities, fixed income, multi asset and alternatives. Our expertise covers the developed and emerging markets as well as public and private markets. We offer single-country and global strategies and thematic and sector portfolios. As a pioneer in sustainable investing for more than two decades, we develop specialist products and carry out dedicated research.

We provide our clients with solutions

Our clients are typically saving for retirement or looking to preserve wealth for future generations. They need the investment alpha that we seek to generate. They also need us to think long-term. That means offering a range of expertise and capabilities across and within asset classes, and it increasingly means putting sustainability at the forefront of what we do.

We work across teams and asset classes to help capture structural alpha using new tools and techniques to support our decisions.

We harness our risk-management and asset-allocation expertise to provide specialist solutions that meet a range of client requirements.

We draw on our in-house research to identify investable themes that tap into clients’ evolving priorities and interests – and take advantage of trends.

We build on our time-tested capabilities and growing market presence to provide clients with access to new sources of long-term income, making complexity investable.

We answer the growing call for sustainable solutions by pooling our environmental, social and governance (ESG) expertise to help capture opportunities linked to sustainable investing.

We've developed a unique skill set

Our ultimate goal is to ensure a superior experience for our clients, wherever they are based and whatever their investment needs. Being active in everything we do is critical to achieving that aim. With the need to seek out additional sources of return becoming more pressing, active management skills are increasingly valuable today.

We are committed to sustainable investing

As part of Allianz Group, we share our parent company’s focus on securing our clients’ future. That means putting sustainability at the forefront of what we do more often. For more than 20 years, we have been a pioneer in sustainable investing. We proactively seek out sustainable investments that drive capital into real-life challenges and provide ways for clients to participate in the global transition towards a more sustainable world.

Our sustainable investing capabilities

Given the many different perspectives and needs of our clients, we tailor our sustainable investment approach to meet individual client needs and perspectives, rather than adopting a one-size-fits-all approach. All our investments draw on our ESG insights and proprietary ESG research because we believe those companies with the strongest ESG credentials are best positioned to flourish and to manage emerging risks.
