Corporate governance system

Our corporate governance system has evolved over the years and is focused on creating value in the medium to long term.

In 2014, we took a further step forward in bringing our governance in line with international best practices, to make governance of our company more efficient and effective overtime. We began the process in 2012 and intend to continue down this road.

Generali’s governance structure

Generali adopted the traditional Italian system:

  • Shareholders’ Meeting: a corporate body that expresses the wishes of shareholders through resolutions
  • Board of Directors: responsible for strategic management in pursuit of the corporate purposes and for supervising the implementation of the strategic guidelines
  • Board of Statutory Auditors: responsible for ensuring compliance with the applicable laws and regulations and the articles of association as well as management control

We engage an auditing firm to audit our accounts.
