Two managers responsible for a suite of Allianz SE hedge funds that allegedly lost billions in the early days of the global pandemic, were sacked by the company, according to a report by Bloomberg.

Regulatory filings show that both Greg Tournant and Stephen Bond-Nelson were removed from their positions as managers of Allianz Global Investors Structured Alpha hedge funds in December for ‘violation of firm  policies designed to ensure compliance with industry regulations and standards relating to the preparation and provision of client communications’, and ‘violation of firm compliance policies’, respectively.
