The staff at GrassrootsSM
Research listens every day to the unanswered questions that portfolio managers and analysts express about company- or industry-specific issues. They then form these questions into market research projects to be completed by independent researchers around the world.
Our research is proprietary to Allianz Global Investors and is tailored to answer these specific questions from our portfolio managers and analysts, which are identified based on their potential to be key stock drivers. This leads us to conduct market research on a wide range of topics in all sectors, from consumer, technology, telecom and healthcare to industrials, materials, financials and energy.
