Allianz gets sued in the US

Allianz gets sued in the US

Allianz under scrutiny by the US Securities and Exchange Commission

It's a known fact that the #coronavirus hugely impacted industries and sent the markets spiraling downward. So far, only the German company Allianz faces various lawsuits in the States over failing to safeguard investor assets.

The starting point was in March when Allianz had to close two private hedge funds after dramatic losses. Over time, the fallout of pension funds for truckers, teachers, and subway workers had people seeking justice. According to the multiple #lawsuits filed in the US Southern District of New York; people lost around $4 billion.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission started an inquiry. In response to the allegations, a spokesman for Allianz Global Investors stated that "While the losses were disappointing, the allegations made by claimants are legally and factually flawed, and we will defend ourselves vigorously against them."

Teamster labour union, Blue Cross, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and many more are now seeking a jury trial for damage retribution.

These US trials are not the first against the Munich-based company. Their whole insurance business faces claims regarding cancelled events and a decline in demand for vehicles and travel insurance. Now, after the pandemic's effects and numerous lawsuits, Allianz is expected to post a drop in annual profit for the first time in a decade.

At the moment of writing, the Allianz stock price is trading 1.23% lower.
