Allianz Remains Committed To Cautious Investment Strategy - Quick Facts

Allianz (AZSEY.PK) said that, given the volatile capital market environment, it remains committed to a cautious investment strategy.

Although the overall environment remains challenging, the company believes that it will be able to boost its operating profit to 8.2 billion euros, plus and minus 500 million euros.

The company noted that three operating segments will make different contributions to the planned increase in earnings. It expects claims due to natural catastrophes to normalize, allowing operating results in the P&C insurance segment to improve. Allianz also expects to see a slight increase in earnings in the life and health insurance business.

Further, Allianz proposed to the Annual General Meeting that the dividend be kept constant in a year-over-year comparison at 4.50 euros per share.
