MINNEAPOLIS – Sept. 26, 2022 – Allianz Investment Management LLC (AllianzIM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (Allianz Life®), announced a ticker symbol change for eight existing AllianzIM Buffered Outcome ETFs effective on October 31, 2022.

The new tickers start by depicting a three-letter indicator for the outcome period month followed by either a “T” to represent ten for the Buffer10 funds, or “W” to represent twenty for the Buffer20 funds. The change in each fund ticker symbol will have no effect on its investment objective, strategy or fees and expenses and no action is required by current shareholders of the funds as a result of this change.
