In Generali we have a significant number of individual investors, the retail shareholders. About a quarter of our share capital is subdivided among them. This is why we have created a section where we can interact with private shareholders and examine issues more closely linked to savings.
The next Generali Investor Day took place on December 15th 2021, at 9.00 (8.00 GMT). The Company has given its retail shareholders the opportunity to follow the proceedings of this important moment of financial communication in live video streaming, upon registration, in English or with an Italian simultaneous translation.
See the Investor Day page for the documentation dedicated to investors and analysts.
GENERALI AND ITS SHAREHOLDERS
The General Meeting, called at least once a year and open to all those holding at least one Assicurazioni Generali share, is a fundamental aspect of the life of the company, one in which the shareholders have the opportunity to formally interact with the board of directors and management to discuss the main issues that took place during the financial year.
The AGM 2021 was held on April 29th 2021. For this meeting, held without the physical attendance by shareholders due to the current health emergency, Generali has further enhanced what has been offered in 2020 and given all shareholders entitled to vote the possibility to follow the full AGM proceedings via live video streaming.
The AGM 2020 was held on April 30th 2020 in a new mode. Consequently with the restrictions due to the national health situation and the specific law provisions in force (particularly art.106 of DL March 17th, no. 18) Assicurazioni Generali held its meeting without physical attendance by shareholders, all of whom had the possibility to cast their vote by conferring a proxy to the Designated Representative, also through a dedicated online portal. The Designated Representative is a third-party, independent and free service that expresses the vote of shareholders.
For Generali being close to and with its shareholders is a fundamental and indispensable value. As a consequence, considering the health and legislative picture of the first months of 2020, the Company, being almost the only one among Italian issuers, has upgraded its usual webcasting service of the opening speeches by the company’s top management, to a new and different service, reserved to shareholders: the live audio streaming of the full AGM proceedings.
SHAREHOLDERS’ MEETING EXTENDED INCLUSION (SMEI)
In order to overcome the physical, communicative and sensorial barriers that may prevent the participation of some shareholders in the General Meeting, Generali has launched, since 2016, the Shareholders' Meeting Extended Inclusion (SMEI) program.
Supported by the enthusiasm and dedication of the volunteers of our Group and the collaboration of trained assistance professionals, the SMEI Program has developed over time, through the provision of a growing number of services, always oriented towards the inclusion of all shareholders with respect to that central moment in the life of the Company which is the Annual General Meeting.
