Ladies and Gentlemen:

This Fee Waiver Agreement (this “Agreement”) is entered into as of the date first set forth above between Allianz Funds (the “Trust”), on behalf of the series of the Trust described in Exhibit A hereto (each a “Fund” and, together, the “Funds”), and Allianz Global Investors U.S. LLC (“AllianzGI U.S.”), on the following terms:

1.    The Trust is an open-end management investment company that has multiple separate investment portfolios, including the Funds.

2.    Pursuant to the Amended and Restated Administration Agreement dated August 27, 2020, as amended or supplemented from time to time (the “Administration Agreement”) and the Amended and Restated Investment Advisory Agreement dated October 1, 2016, as amended or supplemented from time to time (the “Advisory Agreement” and, together with the Administration Agreement, the “Management Agreements”), the Trust has retained AllianzGI U.S. to provide the Trust, the Funds and the Funds’ shareholders with investment advisory, administration and other services.

3.    For each Fund listed under “Fund” in Exhibit A, for the share classes of such Fund specified under “Classes,” AllianzGI U.S. shall waive its fees payable under the particular Management Agreement specified under “Affected Agreement” in the amount or according to the schedule specified under “Fee Waiver” and for the period specified under “Term of Agreement.” In each case, the amount waived will first be determined as aggregated across all share classes specified under “Classes” and then prorated among the specified share classes according to the average daily net assets attributable to each share class.

4.    The Fee Waiver Agreement between the parties dated August 28, 2019 will cease and terminate on August 27, 2020 and be replaced by this Agreement.
