MINNEAPOLIS -- June 26, 2013

Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (Allianz Life) announced today
that Moody’s Investors Service recently affirmed the company’s financial
security rating at A2 with a stable outlook. A2 is the sixth highest of 21
possible ratings.

Since before the 2008 financial crisis, Allianz Life has maintained the same
high financial strength and security rating that Moody’s affirmed on April 30,
2013.

Moody’s based its rating on Allianz Life’s leadership position in fixed index
annuities, the company’s strong investment management capabilities, a
well-developed distribution system, and a history of product and marketing
innovation, according to Moody’s electronic credit opinion.

“Our focus is on delivering results for our customers, which means bringing
innovative products to market, securing conservative investments, and keeping
our promises for Americans who depend on us during their retirement years,”
said Allianz Life Chief Financial Officer Giulio Terzariol. “While the
insurance and annuity landscape continues to evolve, both producers and
consumers who rely on Allianz Life products should take note of our
consistently high, steady ratings.”

Allianz Life also holds an A (Excellent) rating from A.M. Best, the third
highest of 16 possible ratings, and a rating of AA (Very Strong) from Standard
& Poor’s, the third highest of 21 possible ratings. A.M. Best's rating
reflects excellent financial strength and ability to meet obligations to
contract holders. S&P's rating reflects very strong financial security.
