FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — German insurance group Allianz SE says its net income bounced back strongly in the third quarter to €1.4 billion ($1.8 billion).

The company said Tuesday its business performed well across all divisions, which include life and health insurance and asset management. The company's businesses include California-based bond fund manager Pacific Investment Management Co., or PIMCO.

Allianz raised its prediction for operating earnings for the full year to €9 billion, up from €8.2 billion plus or minus €500 million.
