As a leading financial insurance provider in Italy, Assicurazioni Generali has solidified their place in the market, joining the Milan Stock Exchange for public trade .
In recent news, Assicurazioni Generali S.p.A has experienced shareholder tensions and proposed a new chairman to tame the reaction. Whether or not this decision will placate investors is the big question.
History of Assicurazioni Generali Stocks
Since joining the exchange, Assicurazioni Generali S.p.A has steadily increased in value, while also experiencing the usual dips of the market.
At the end of 2021, Assicurazioni Generali S.p.A closed with the “best ever operating result and an extremely solid capital position”.
While this has inspired investors to hold onto their stocks, recent turbulence with Italy’s prime minister challenging Italy’s largest insurer has caused many to consider selling.
Current Quotation of Assicurazioni Generali
Assicurazioni Generali S.p.A recently closed at EUR 18.67 on Thursday, April 21, 2022.
On the day, the cost of stock ranged between EUR 18.38 to EUR 18.58. On a broader scale, the price has fluctuated from EUR 15.30 to EUR 21.55 over a 52 week period.
These variations have been triggered by a large group of shareholders reconsidering their investment due to the organisation’s management and strategy.
The Future for Assicurazioni Generali
In February 2022, Generali Chairman, Gabriele Galateri di Genola announced that he would not be seeking re-election to the board at the end of his term. He made reference to tensions with high-profile shareholders over the management of the company, and welcomed Andrea Sironi’s nomination for chairman.
Andrea Sironi has experience serving on the boards of major European financial institutions and could offer great value to Assicurazioni Generali and give investors the confidence that they need.
In the same breath, Generali CEO, Philippe Donnet, is standing firm against rebel investors, saying that he is not concerned about the outcome. His confidence is quelling a lot of concern among smaller investors.
If you’re considering an investment in Assicurazioni Generali, then it’s worth keeping a close eye on management politics.
