Allianz Life Insurance Company Of North America Key Developments
Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America Launches Two Investment Options to Variable Annuity Portfolio
Apr 27 15
Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America launched two new investment options available on all new business and in-force Allianz VisionSM Variable Annuity and Allianz ConnectionsSM Variable Annuity products. The AZL® MVP DFA Multi-Strategy Fund and the RCM Dynamic Multi-Asset Plus VIT Portfolio are now available on contracts that either have no additional optional benefits or have the optional Income Protector rider. The addition of these popular investment options from experienced asset managers supports Allianz Life’s commitment to the variable annuity marketplace. These investment options offer clients an additional asset allocation solution and can serve as the foundation for their overall portfolio.
The AZL MVP DFA Multi-Strategy Fund combines a number of DFA’s popular strategies into an asset allocation composed of U.S. large and small-cap, international and emerging markets equity, and global fixed income asset classes through the MVP risk management process. The goal of the MVP risk management process is to manage the risk of market exposure. When overall market volatility is generally moderate or low, the MVP risk management process participates with the market equal to the risk of the investment option thus minimizing its protection aspect. During periods of higher market volatility, the MVP risk management process seeks to reduce volatility with the goal of minimizing extreme negative outcomes.
RCM Dynamic Multi-Asset Plus VIT Portfolio: The RCM Dynamic Multi-Asset Plus VIT Portfolio (DMAP) is being offered to Allianz Life as an investment option for the first time by Allianz Global Investors (AllianzGI). Using the expertise of more than 500 investment professionals across 17 countries, AllianzGI is an active investment manager with $499 billion in assets under management. The DMAP strategy seeks capital appreciation and risk mitigation relative to a global 60% equities/40% fixed-income benchmark. Using a unique approach, the DMAP strategy dynamically allocates its assets based on the investment management team’s assessment of asset class trends and their underlying fundamentals. The strategy favors riskier asset classes when trends and fundamentals are positive and becomes more defensive in its positioning when they are not. The investment team has the ability to dynamically adjust the equity allocation up to 65% when markets are favorable and down to 10% in times of market stress offering opportunity for enhanced returns and risk control for investors through active asset allocation.
