The aim of Allianz SE’s Supervisory Board is to have members who are equipped with the necessary skills and competence to properly supervise and advise Allianz SE’s management. Supervisory Board candidates should possess the professional expertise and experience, integrity, motivation and commitment, independence and personality required to successfully carry out the responsibilities of a Supervisory Board member in a financial services institution with international operations.
These objectives take into account the regulatory requirements for the composition of the Supervisory Board as well as the relevant recommendations of the German Corporate Governance Code (GCGC).
