Corporate Governance

Allianz - Corporate_Governance_291x200px

Questions regarding corporate management, control and transparency are summarized under "Corporate Governance". Allianz SE understands a responsible and transparent Corporate Governance as a central challenge and indispensable prerequisite for the creation of sustainable value for its shareholders and all other stakeholders.

  Basic principles

The corporate governance structures of a company are subject to various factors of influence. Their basis is formed by obligatory legal requirements; these are supplemented by rules which the company adheres to voluntarily. Essential elements of good corporate governance are above all the paying of absolute attention to the interests of shareholders, efficient cooperation between corporate bodies as well as transparent communication.

  Declaration of Conformity

The German Corporate Governance Code summarizes the fundamental guidelines of Corporate Governance in Germany. The Board of Management and the Supervisory Board of Allianz SE are issuing a yearly statement in respect of the recommendations of this Code.

  Statutes

Here you find the statutes of Allianz SE in the current version. Besides general regulations, the statutes contain rules regarding the central bodies (Board of Management, Supervisory Board, Annual General Meeting), the annual financial statements, and the proposal for appropriation of net earnings.

  Legal form

Allianz SE is the holding company of the Allianz Group and holds the legal form of a European company “Societas Europaea” (SE) since 2006. Allianz was the first company in the EURO STOXX 50 Index to adopt this legal form.

  Organizational bodies

Board of Management, Supervisory Board and General Meeting form the central bodies of Allianz SE. The German stock corporation law clearly distinguishes the area of responsibilities of these three bodies.

  Auditor

The independent auditor KPMG Deutsche Treuhand-Gesellschaft AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft audited the annual accounts of Allianz SE and the consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2016 as well as the management report of Allianz SE and the Group and provided an unqualified audit certificate.

  Code of Conduct

Allianz established the minimum standards of conduct for all Allianz employees worldwide in the “Code of Conduct for Business Ethics and Compliance”. In addition, Allianz SE adopted a "Code of Ethics" aimed at the members of the Board of Management and senior financial officers.
