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 2023 was held on the 28th of April 2023, and convened without physical attendance of shareholders and exclusively through the presence of the Appointed Representative, taking advantage of the option introduced by art. 106 of Decree-Law No. 18 of 17 March 2020, converted by Law No. 27 of 24 April 2020, the effects of which were extended by Decree-Law No. 198 of 29 December 2022, converted by Law No. 14 of 24 February 2023). Shareholders were given the possibility to cast their vote by conferring a proxy to the Designated Representative, also through a dedicated online portal.
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, 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. This first step was built upon in 2021 when a video streaming service was provided with excellent results: such service was available also in 2022 and 2023, granting an exclusive opportunity for Generali shareholders.
The recording of opening speeches by the Chairman, Group CEO and Group CFO is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian Sign Language and with Italian subtitles on the AGM 2023 – live streaming page.
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.

Generali's engagement to keep its shareholders up to date and in contact
Generali strongly believes in the value of the trust shown by tens of thousands private investors that make up the base of its shareholder structure and as a consequence is focused on supplying a continuous and detailed stream of information, in particular in important moments of the Company’s life. This focus and conviction are embodied by various documents, published periodically or on particular occasions and designed with retail shareholders’ needs in mind:
