Your Career @ AIM

Join us at Allianz Investment Management to build the strongest insurance investor!

At AIM you will work in a complex and challenging environment linking capital markets, investment management and insurance business. This unique situation offers a great variety of career opportunities in the financial industry. To be successful and achieve outstanding results, we are looking for ambitious people who are constantly eager for challenges, ongoing learning and high performance.

Find out more about different job profiles at AIM in our Hubs or Global Functions:

Hubs

The teams in the Hubs are responsible for the actual portfolios of the Allianz insurance companies in the respective regions. One entry position in the Hubs we regularly offer is the so-called “Analyst”-position.

In a first step as Analyst you will receive a thorough induction into the way we are managing investments providing you with a profound basis for your career at AIM. One of your first tasks will be monitoring of portfolios and preparation of portfolio analysis. After a successful introduction time you will expand your interaction with the counterparts at the insurance units as well as the local investment units. As soon as you have gained comprehensive investment experience, ideally also in a different Hub or in one of our global expert teams, you will assume more responsibility and eventually become responsible for smaller portfolios. At that time you will also participate more actively in global investment management through stronger collaboration with one of our dedicated global expert teams.

Global Functions

The teams in the Global Functions provide and aggregate expertise across Hubs. Hence, in the Global Functions we regularly look for people with profound professional experience. Typically, employees have already worked in one of our Hubs, in another Allianz Company abroad or somewhere else in the financial industry.

We offer positions as Associate in the Global Functions, where you will take on the exciting tasks of preparing investment analysis on a global scale, developing recommendations and providing guidance to the colleagues being responsible for the portfolios. Based on your knowledge of industry trends you are able to track and monitor strategic developments in the markets and come up with your own proposals, tailor-made to the investment needs of the Hubs.

Another possibility is the position as an Asset Class Team Head – a senior team member in the Global Functions responsible for the strategic development of the respective asset class. Asset Class Team Heads are close to the markets and have a thorough understanding of insurance needs paired with strong capital markets expertise.

AIM Experience

The following is what some AIM employees had to say about their reasons for working at AIM, how they have developed during their time at AIM and which competencies they need most.

What are your key reasons to work for AIM?

"In AIM you work together in a team with very experienced and great people from all over the world. The subjects AIM is covering are very diverse and challenging. It’s fun being creative as you are asked to bring in your own ideas and to think out of the box."

"Allianz Group’s insurance portfolios are managed by AIM, which make us a strong player in the Allianz Group’s Value Chain. Another aspect, which makes AIM an attractive company, is that people are encouraged to developed themselves. As far as I am concerned, I decided to enroll in the CFA Program. Support from AIM was more than just words, I got additional holidays for study leave and an attractive bonus when I finally become a CFA charter holder."

How have you developed since starting at AIM?

"I joined AIM after having worked almost 4 years as an auditor of investment funds in Luxembourg. From this experience I gathered rather accounting and technical financial instruments experience. This is why I started naturally within the local planning and controlling sub-team. Over the first two years I was able to understand in-depth the job as an investment manager. From this experience, I had the opportunity to join a more tactical position within the global equity team."

"I started in the team managing German P/C portfolios I was able to move through many topics covered by AIMs investment value chain. I’m currently looking forward to expand upon that knowledge by taking over an investment management role for Allianz insurance portfolios in the CEE region."

What competencies do you use/need most?

“In my view the ability to grasp new and complex issues quickly is the most important competency as topics are changing frequently and problems are usually not solvable just taking “one side of the coin” into account.”

“In my perspective to be communicative, curious, open minded, engaged and to be open for challenges is most important.”

What do you enjoy most about working at AIM?

“Having the feeling of living in a small global village when I get to talk to my colleagues in Singapore, Munich and the United States on the same day in 3 different languages.”

“Allianz is a global company, and capital markets are global. But at AIM, I get to enjoy a truly international environment, working with people across the globe, for insurance portfolios across the globe.”
