US-based insurance and financial services provider Nationwide is partnering with Generali on a joint venture aimed at supporting multinational solutions for international commercial clients.
N2G Worldwide Insurance Services, LLC will exclusively promote, distribute and administer insurance solutions for multi-national exposures on behalf of both organisations.
Business to N2G will be sourced through independent agents, brokers and wholesalers.
Nationwide will assume US risk exposures and Generali (directly or through its partners) will assume non-US exposures.
“We are proud to join forces with a strong partner like Generali, combining our trusted customer-focused protection with their existing multinational footprint,” said Mark Berven, President & COO, Nationwide Property and Casualty.
“This partnership between two insurance powerhouses will elevate the solutions we can offer to commercial members to help them protect their business across the globe with extraordinary care.”
“This partnership is part of our strategic plan 2021 to be a Life-Time Partner to our customers, offering them innovative and personalized solutions,” said Marco Sesana, Country Manager Italy & CEO of Generali Italia and Global Business Lines Generali.
“Today we are proud to announce this joint venture that brings together Nationwide’s brand recognition and distribution with Generali Global Corporate & Commercial’s extensive global network and local knowledge in over 160 countries around the world. N2G will be fully equipped to offer a comprehensive and seamless multinational program to its customers.”
