Dividend pay-out (valuta)1


1
 Aiming at a harmonization of securities settlements within Europe, the German legislator revised the due date for dividend payments effective from January 1, 2017. In accordance with the newly worded § 58 (4) AktG, the entitlement to dividends shall not fall due on the day following the Annual General Meeting, as has been the case earlier, but on the third business day following the Annual General Meeting.

Dividend policy with pay-out ratio of 50 percent

We strive to offer attractive dividends to our shareholders. The framework for this is determined by our net income and the need for an adequate capitalization.

  • Regular pay-out is 50% of Allianz Group net income (attributable to shareholders).
  • In the interest of dividend continuity, the objective is to keep the dividend per share at least at the level paid in the previous year.
  • In addition, Allianz returns capital to its shareholders on a flexible basis.

  • The dividend policy is subject to a sustainable Solvency II ratio above 160%.

Also, the dividend payment in any given year is subject to specific dividend proposals by the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board, each of which may elect to deviate from this dividend policy if appropriate under the then prevailing circumstances, as well as to the decision of the Annual General Meeting.
