The ratings reflect Generali’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorises as strong, as well as its strong operating performance, very favourable business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management. The life segment produced an improved new business margin (standing at 4.01% at year-end 2017 – calculated on present value of new business premiums), driven by the management actions taken to reduce the average embedded guarantee within the life book and develop capital efficient products to augment profitability. Generali remains one of the largest insurers in Europe, with gross written premium in excess of EUR 66 billion in 2017.
