Generali Group

          where we are


          At a Glance

          Generali is a major player in the global insurance industry – a strategic and highly important sector for the growth, development and welfare of modern societies.

          In almost 200 years, we have built a multinational group that is present in almost 50 countries, with around 70,000 employees.

          In recent years we have been through a major strategic reorganisation that has allowed us to bring in greater focus on our core business, greater discipline in the management of our assets, and simpler, more transparent governance. This process has led us into a new phase, based on more efficient business models, innovative commercial strategies, and a stronger, more global brand.

          We are also deeply engaged in Corporate Social Responsibility – a commitment that is rooted that is in our work as insurers, but that also goes beyond our business vocation.
