Active is the most important word in our vocabulary. It doesn’t just describe how we manage your money at Allianz Global Investors. It defines our entire approach as a business, from the enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit of our employees, to our self-critical assessment of performance. Active is how we create and share value with clients.
