Generali España is one of the main insurance groups in Spain, ranked eighth in terms of total premiums, with a market share of 3.7% in the life segment and 4.3% in the P&C segment. The Group offers a wide range of life and P&C policies dedicated to private individuals and companies, using a multi-channel distribution strategy including bank offices and a network of agents and brokers which is among the most extensive in Spain. In 2016, the bancassurance agreement with Cajamar was renewed and reinforced, thereby giving Generali España exposure to the main life distribution channel, which is also expanding in the P&C segment.
Generali has operated in this country since 1832 and is the third largest insurance operator in terms of written premiums, with a market share of 14.0% in life insurance and of 16.3% in P&C. It currently operates in the country through the insurance companies Generali Versicherung, BAWAG P.S.K. Versicherung and Europäische Reiseversicherung. The multi-channel distribution strategy involves multiple sales channels: agents, brokers, financial advisors and banks (BAWAG P.S.K. and 3Banken). The strategy adopted in the Austrian market reflects that of the Group, allowing the company to confirm its position as market leader in the retail sector thanks to the focus on customers and on their needs and to the quality of services, offering simple and innovative solutions.
Generali has been operating in Switzerland since 1987, consolidating its presence over time by the acquisition and merger of many insurance companies. Generali Switzerland is the 8th largest insurance group in terms of life and P&C premium income, with a life market share of 3.7%, and a P&C share of 4.9%.
