Allianz Global Investors
] is crafting a variety of sales, strategies, including a marketing tool
, to resonate with irked investors.
"We have had a lot of success taking advantage of strategies that fit into the market at this time," Roddy Marino
, head of advisory sales, recently told MFWire
There are a number of strategies that Marino and his colleagues have been able to showcase to advisors as methods for riding out the repression, including high-yield, income, growth and global asset allocation.
"The message that we are hearing is that investors are realizing they need to look for some yield, looking for a bit more growth," Marino said.
Distributing these funds, as well as developing new funds to meet the market, has become easier thanks to Allianz' unification of its sales operation
, as well as the efforts of U.> retail head John Carroll
to expand the firm's footprint
