Partnership with Generali for insurance solution
Intesa Sanpaolo announces a partnership for the Slovenian market to combine good customer knowledge and developed consulting activity within its wide-ranging distribution network with Generali's extensive experience in developing and offering insurance products. The aim of the partnership is to strengthen the bancassurance businessand to expand the range of newly designed products and services for individuals, families and small businesses.
“Our investments in digitalization and the training of branch personnel to advisers for comprehensive financial planning in recent years enable us to now have a thorough insight into the daily needs of our customers, including their aspiration to protect what they care about the most", said Jozef Kausich, President of the Management Board of Intesa Sanpaolo Bank, adding: "We strongly believe in synergies brought on by banking and insurance products jointly contributing to the financial stability and comfort of our customers in their private and professional lives. Thanks to this partnership we will further strengthen our insurance consultancy and complement our offer with highest quality insurance products”.
The Slovenian market is considered to be one of the most attractive insurance markets in Central and Eastern Europe in terms of growth, especially in the field of life insurance. The penetration of insurance products in Slovenia accounts for 5% of the GDP.
"Generali’s goal is to offer all our customers products and services that are adjusted to their needs and wishes, as a lifelong partner. I am happy that we can also offer Intesa Sanpaolo Bank’s customers in Slovenia, namely individuals, families and companies, solutions that provide protection in accordance with their various needs and expectations," said Vanja Hrovat, president of the Management Board of the Generali insurance company in Slovenia.
Intesa Sanpaolo offers for the Slovenian market a service model based on the operation of a single team comprised of experts at the international and local level. The goal of the model is to develop the most appropriate solutions for customers and to raise the level of quality of the services offered. The partnership contributes to the natural development of the role of a bank consultant who will become a point of reference in the branch in relation to the comprehensive management of all risks related to family assets (health, work, cars, homes, pets) and business operations.
A new umbrella brand “BE PROTECTED” has been created to help reinforce the bancassurance business. Its graphic design with carefully selected typography intuitively and directly strengthens the message of the protection concept and the value that these products bring to the bank's customers.
