Italian insurance giant Generali has launched a new business unit designed to offer pension risk transfer solutions to multi-national corporations, called Generali Global Pension (GGP).

Generali logoGenerali said the unit will aim to accompany corporations in their de-risking journey and cross-border plans, providing a range of services for both plan sponsors and employees.

The move will allow Generali to move into the pension de-risking space, in which it could now become a large player if it wanted to.

The global pension market manages approximately $38.1 trillion and is increasing by 3.5% annually, offering high-growth potential for investments, innovation and services.

GGP will also promote Generali’s asset-management platform by creating a new distribution channel and inspiring ESG and long-term investment expertise, the company said, and reinforces the Generali Employee Benefits’ (GEB) global leadership by completing their solutions with pension.
