Our Culture & behavioral principles

The world around us is changing rapidly and financial services along with it. The Renewal Agenda makes sure we keep building on our strong foundations and reinforce our leading position by focusing our efforts in five fields of action: True Customer Centricity, Digital by Default, Technical Excellence, Growth Engines and Inclusive Meritocracy.
We believe, our culture has to evolve towards a more agile, customer-oriented and collaborative mindset. Inclusive Meritocracy at Allianz can be described by three principles.
