Allianz SE (ALV)
Allianz is a provider of insurance, banking, and asset management. Its main business takes place in the area of insurance in Europe and Asia. It is still a major player in Asset Management, but has recently dramatically cut back its banking activities with the sale of Dresdner Bank to Commerzbank.
The Allianz Group is one of the leading integrated financial services providers worldwide. With nearly 142,000 employees worldwide (as of December 31, 2011), Allianz serves more than 78 million customers in about 70 countries. On the insurance side, Allianz is the market leader in the German market and has a strong international presence. In fiscal 2011 the Allianz Group achieved total revenues of over 103.6 billion euros. The Allianz Group is also one of the world's largest asset managers, with third-party assets of 1,281 billion euros under management at year end 2011.
In 2006 Allianz SE, the parent company, became the first company in the Dow Jones EURO STOXX 50 Index to adopt the legal form of a Societas Europaea, which is a new European legal form for stock corporations. Allianz SE is headquartered in Munich, Germany.
Allianz cut their dividend in 2008 and has been increasing it slowly since then, although it has not recovered to 2007 levels.
The dividend has been held at euro 4.50 for the past three years
