Generali is a major player in the global insurance industry – a strategic and highly important sector for the growth, development and welfare of modern societies.
Over almost 200 years, we have built an independent, Italian Group, with a strong international presence. Established in 1831, it is among the world’s leading insurers and it is present in over 60 countries with total premium income exceeding €68 billion in 2017. With nearly 71,000 employees in the world and 57 million customers, the Group has a leading position in Western Europe and an increasingly significant presence in Central and Eastern Europe as well as in Asia. In 2017, Generali Group was included among the most sustainable companies in the world by the Corporate Knights ranking.
In recent years we have been through a major strategic reorganisation that has allowed us to bring in greater focus on our core business, greater discipline in the management of our assets, and simpler, more transparent governance. This process has led us into a new phase, based on more efficient business models, innovative commercial strategies, and a stronger, more global brand.
We are also deeply engaged in Corporate Social Responsibility – a commitment rooted that is in our work as insurers, but that also goes beyond our business vocation.
Since the very beginning, our strong international vocation has set us apart and is one of our greatest strengths. Our geographical diversification is balanced between mature countries such as Italy, Germany and France, markets with high growth prospects (Eastern Europe), and emerging countries in Asia and Latin America.
