“The presidential election this November has added another layer of uncertainty to an already volatile 2020,” notes Brian Muench, president of AllianzIM. “This latest series in the AllianzIM Buffered Outcome ETFs suite is designed to help investors mitigate risk in their portfolios amidst ongoing market volatility, while still providing the opportunity to participate in the upside potential of the equity market.”

AllianzIM’s Buffered Outcome ETFs are offered at an expense ratio of 74 basis points, with portfolio management conducted in-house by AllianzIM. The 12-month outcome period of the October series ETFs will be October 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021. Each Outcome Period reflects a new stated Cap commensurate with prevailing market conditions, allowing investors to remain invested with a level of risk mitigation. AllianzIM currently has four additional U.S. Large Cap Buffered Outcome ETFs on the market: (AZAA), (AZBA), (AZAL), and (AZBL).

AllianzIM Buffered Outcome ETFs leverage AllianzIM’s core strengths, which include risk management experience and in-house hedging capabilities. Managing over $145 billion in hedged assets, AllianzIM serves as a bridge between insurance and capital markets. Offering a new way to help investors seek to mitigate risk and reduce volatility, these new ETFs complement Allianz Life’s suite of annuity and life insurance products.
