Generali launches Generali Global Pension business unit
Generali in November 2018 launched Generali Global Pension (GGP), a global business unit dedicated to pensions.
The initiative is in line with Generali’s strategic targets of “consolidating its global leadership in Employee Benefits, and accelerating the growth of its asset management business.”
GGP will provide multinational corporations with pensions de-risking solutions and cross-border plans. It will also create an additional distribution channel for Generali’s multi-boutique asset-management platform and develop ESG (1) and long-term investment expertise. Furthermore, Generali Employee Benefits (GEB) now improves its product range by adding pensions. Finally, GGP will address local markets, adapting to specific client needs.
According to the company, the global pensions market has a size of about $ 38.1 trillion in assets under management (AUM) and grows by 3.5% per year.
GGP is headed by Anne de Lanversin, reporting to Jean-Laurent Granier, Country Manager France and in charge of Europ Assistance. Anne has more than 25 years of experience in asset management, employee benefits and insurance. She joins Generali from AXA where she was Chief Sales Officer of AXA Employee Benefits Partners; and earlier, Head of Sales for investment solutions and the pensions market at AXA France. Previously, she worked for Allianz Global Investors as Corporate Sales Manager after starting her career in sales at BFT Crédit Agricole bank. Anne holds an M.A. in Communications from McGill University in Montreal, Canada; and graduated in economics and in political science from the Institut d’Etudes Politiques in Paris, France.
