Allianz – History and Development  

 Allianz was founded in 1890 in Berlin, Germany. Today, its headquarters are located in Munich, the capital of Bavaria in southern Germany.

Since the early years of the 20th century, Allianz has been active in the international insurance market. It covered and compensated for high profile claims such as the devastating earthquake in San Francisco in 1906 and the sinking of the "Titanic" ocean liner. During the "German economic recovery" period of the 1950s, Allianz powered ahead to become the largest insurer in Germany. It resumed its international activities at the end of the ’60s.  

During the ’80s and ’90s, Allianz conducted numerous strategic acquisitions in Europe and North America with well-known insurance companies such as RAS, Cornhill, AGF, Fireman's Fund and Life USA Insurance, and further strengthened its position as international insurer. Today, more than 70 percent of Allianz’s gross written premiums are generated from businesses outside Germany, a clear indication of Allianz’s successful efforts to be a leading international player.

In 1998, Allianz took the strategic decision to combine its asset management activities into a separate core business. With the subsequent acquisition of US-based asset managers PIMCO Advisors, Nicholas Applegate, and Dresdner Bank, Allianz further reinforced its reputation as a leading institutional investor. In October 2004, Allianz was named the Global Market Leader in asset management. As a major investor, Allianz holds stakes in numerous domestically and internationally renowned companies.

Allianz transformed its legal status from a German stock corporation (Aktiengesellschaft, or AG) into a European company (Societas Europaea, or SE) on 13 October 2006 and became the first listed German company to convert itself into a European Company listed as a stock corporation based on European Union law.
