Letter from the Chairman and the Group CEO
Generali closed another year with excellent results and strengthened its positions as one of the most important players in the insurance industry. These results demonstrate that the Group is increasingly solid, efficient and innovative, and that it is able to effectively handle the challenges distinguishing our industry and that are becoming deeply intertwined with the global and interdependent changes in the society.
In economic, industrial and capital terms, the Group presented an operating result once again marked by growth and the best profit of the last three years, increasingly higher quality and premium income and a strengthened capital position. All this confirms the soundness of the strategy launched two years ago and that will be completed in 2018 before starting a new three-year period that - and of this we are sure - will be just as satisfactory.
The integrated overview of our reports
We report the story of our Group in an increasingly innovative and integrated manner: the story of how we create value is found within the Annual Integrated Report which is our core report* centred on key financial and non-financial information while - by means of other reports and channels of communication (our more reports*) we present more detailed and supplementary information, some of which targets a specialized audience. The information of the Annual Integrated Report is therefore connected to the in-depth information, thus enhancing the integrated thinking.
*Core&More: new corporate reporting approach developed by Accountancy Europe which provides for a core report, that contains a summary of all key information required to evaluate and understand the company, and more reports including more detailed information. www.accountancyeurope.eu for more in-depth information.
