Investing in real estate assets with Allianze PNB

Allianz PNB Life Insurance Inc. (Allianz PNB Life), one of the country’s top insurers and affiliate of the #1 insurance brand in the world, has partnered with BlackRock, Inc. (BlackRock), the world’s leading asset manager, to provide a unique investment solution in the Philippines with a promising outlook for 2022.

With BlackRock’s investment expertise and leverage in the industry, Allianz PNB Life introduces the Global Real Assets Dividend Paying Fund which is available in both peso-hedged and US dollar versions.

With this move, it can keep your capability for profit sustainable.

The Dollar Global Real Assets Dividend Paying Fund seeks to achieve these goals through investing in BlackRock’s BSF Global Real Asset Securities Fund, which invests in equity and equity-related securities of real asset companies globally. The Peso-hedged Global Real Asset Dividend Paying Fund also has the same objectives, with the addition of a hedging mechanism using forwards to minimize the currency impact of fluctuating peso-dollar exchange rates on the underlying dollar- denominated fund.

This new fund lets investors capitalize on the mega trends driving the real asset space to gain more opportunities, with its potential annualized dividend yield approximately at six percent, helping its investors earn part of their outlay back.
