History of Allianz

In 2015 Allianz celebrated the 125th anniversary of the company. Allianz was founded in 1890 in Berlin and Munich. On these pages, you can find out everything about the most important steps and milestones in the development of our long corporate history.

Allianz during the Nazi era

As the largest German insurer, Allianz was part of the Nazi economic system. Among other things, this shows the relationship between the company and the state, the way in which the life insurance policies of Jewish customers were dealt with and the questions surrounding restitution after 1945.

Women at Allianz

From Specialist to Chairwoman of the Board of Management: women occupy all roles at Allianz. That was not always the case: since the first female employees were hired in 1914, the role of women has changed to an enormous extent - and not just within the company.
