07 May 2014 - 12:19

Trieste – Assicurazioni Generali has joined e-MID, the first electronic market for interbank deposits and the reference platform in Europe and the United States. Generali is among the first companies, and the first insurer, to join e-MID.

e-MID represents for Generali another useful channel of direct access to the liquidity market that will allow for a reduction of short term funding operating costs.

By means of this initiative Generali strengthens the new central Treasury management framework, which started last year in order to concentrate the Group’s liquidity and achieve a better internal resource management.

Generali’s presence will increase the e-MID market liquidity and the diversification opportunities for the other market participants. Furthermore Generali will be a solid counterpart with ratings of Baa1/A-/A- (Moody’s/S&P/Fitch).

e-MID is currently the only multilateral platform  for the negotiation of interbank deposits in Europe and the United States. Every day around 156 members from 28 countries connect to the market, including 29 Central Banks as observers.
