Sales and Marketing
The company is looking to boost its distribution of variable annuity products through new alliances with major and regional banks. Allianz Life also seeks to cater to the fairer sex by tailoring financial and investment products to women.
Allianz Life works to regularly roll out new products to better serve its clients across several channels and markets. In 2014 it launched the Essential Income 7 Annuity on the Wells Fargo enhanced Index Annuity Platform. Its Allianz Life Pro+ Survivor Fixed Index Universal Life Insurance Policy was made available, as well, in 43 states.
To serve the broker/dealer channel, Allianz Life in 2013 launched the Allianz Core Income 7 Annuity with its Core Income Benefit rider.
The company has big plans to take advantage of the nation's aging population. In anticipation of unprecedented numbers of retiring workers looking for investment options, Allianz Life commissioned a study to highlight what it expects will be the largest intergenerational wealth transfer in history (and an opportune time to market retirement products) as workers retire or begin handing over investments to the next generation.
