Post closing, Allianz anticipates its P/C market share in Italy will increase by nearly one percentage point.
In a press statement, Generali noted that the divestment is in line with its “Lifetime Partner 24: Driving Growth” strategy in Italy, which targets profitable growth.
The insurer further said that the deal will boost its group Solvency II position by around one percentage point while having a “negligible” impact on its earnings per share.
Mediobanca – Banca di Credito Finanziario and Rothschild served as financial advisors while law firm Gianni & Origoni was the legal advisor to Generali for the transaction.
Allianz enhanced its presence in Italy in 2021 with the purchase of Aviva Group’s Italian P/C unit, currently known as Allianz Viva.
The latest acquisition comes after Allianz Commercial appointed Elke Vagenende as its commercial managing director to lead the Benelux and Nordics regions.
