          Business continues to be highly centred on agents, with a strong position in the direct Life and P&C channels, through Genertel and Genertellife, recently renewed and the first native digital insurance company in Italy. Thanks to its partnership with Banca Generali, the Group is able to offer its customers a broad and complete variety of insurance, pension and savings products. Generali presents itself to the Italian market with three distinct brands marked by a clear strategic positioning - Generali (retail market and SME), Alleanza (households) and Genertel and Genertellife (alternative channels).

          In 2021, Generali Italia completed the implementation of its Lifetime Partner programme, the objective of which is to become the company with the best customer experience through valuable consultancy, using all relationship channels, offering an increasingly extensive range of prevention, protection services and investing in new technologies and related ecosystems. Jeniot, a company launched by Generali Italia at the end of 2018 that develops innovative services in the Internet of Things and connected insurance area tied to mobility, home, health and work, also continued to grow.

          In 2021, the growth of the Italian economy surpassed forecasts (+6.4%), sustained by the increase in household spending which, with the relaxation of limitations to social interaction and movement, contributed to increasing the demand for commercial, transport, tourism and catering services. Even though the end of the state of emergency will lead to a reduction of support measures, the launch of the New Generation EU programmes should guarantee resources to sustain growth even in future years, maintaining high levels, if compared to those observed in the recent past. The high propensity for precautionary saving of households during the pandemic, which also characterised 2021, is expected to fall over the next three years, and to be replaced by asset management instruments and government bonds, whose yields on maturity will once again be attractive. The low interest rates in 2021 continued to sustain risk taking by operators, not just financial ones, in search of more attractive returns, sustaining the demand for asset management and insurance products (multi-business insurance products proved to be very popular, as they combine forms of capital protection with participation in market trends, as were unit-linked products).

          The Human Safety Net: Ora di Futuro

          To immediately meet the new requirements of schools, teachers and households, Generali extended the Ora di Futuro - The Human Safety Net project, which entails digital training and content to guarantee remote lessons in primary schools and in Ora di Futuro centres, providing real help to households in difficulty throughout Italy.
