21 December 2023 - 12:00

Milan – Generali has completed the disposal of Generali Deutschland Pensionskasse AG (GDPK) to Frankfurter Leben following the approval by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) and the relevant German antitrust authorities.

The transaction is aligned with Generali’s “Lifetime Partner 24: Driving Growth” strategy to enhance the profile and profitability of the Life business.

The transaction is expected to generate an after-tax gain from disposal of approximately € 0.3 billion at consolidated level to be recorded in the fourth quarter of 2023, with a positive impact on the reported net result and no impact on the adjusted net result.
The transaction will add approximately 10 p.p. to the German and 1 p.p. to the Group Solvency II positions respectively.

GDPK, with around 150,000 policies, was founded in 2002 as a specialised pension company. Its portfolio was mainly underwritten between 2003 and 2005. GDPK's new business was discontinued at the end of 2016.

Frankfurter Leben is a specialist in the management of pension funds without new business and will continue to manage the contracts with its specially designed business model in the best interests of all customers. Generali Deutschland AG will maintain all services for GDPK and its customers for at least one year to ensure a smooth transition.
