Katie Libbe from Allianz Life Among Minnesota's Top Women in Finance 2013 Led groundbreaking study of American women’s views and beliefs about money Business Wire MINNEAPOLIS -- November 22, 2013 One of Minnesota’s Top Women in Finance this year is Katie Libbe, Vice President of Consumer Insights for Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (Allianz Life®). The 13^th annual awards from Minnesota business publication Finance & Commerce honor women across the state who have distinguished themselves through outstanding contributions to “their professions, their communities and society at large.” Libbe received the award for her contributions as a thought-leader on retirement income planning. Most recently, she led the development and implementation of the Allianz Life 2013 Women, Money & Power Study. This groundbreaking study surveyed more than 2,000 women in America about how they viewed finances and retirement planning. The study led to the creation of new educational materials for financial professionals and drew great attention from the financial community and the media. It has generated hundreds of news articles and positioned Libbe as lead spokesperson for Allianz Life on the topic. “Katie’s honor as one of the Top Women of Finance is well deserved,” said Chief Marketing Officer Nancy Jones. “Her work has raised the profile of Allianz Life and had a significant influence on the discussion of retirement planning.” Libbe leads a team responsible for educating consumers and financial professionals about retirement strategies. They develop educational materials and programs based on pioneering consumer research and analysis. In addition, she is responsible for the Allianz Academy and Advanced Markets teams that represent Allianz Life at more than 800 financial seminars every year. She also serves on the Financial Literacy Council at Allianz Life that supports financial education in Minnesota’s schools. “One of the most pressing needs of our society is growing financial skills,” said Libbe. “People are daunted by financial planning itself and are afraid that they can’t possibly save enough for the future. But they can, especially with the help of a financial professional. My goal and my team’s mission is to show them how.” About Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America, one of FORTUNE’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2013, has been keeping its promises since 1896.
