With the addition of Generali PanEurope, now renamed Utmost PanEurope, Utmost Wealth Solutions is now the 2nd largest cross-border provider of unit-linked wealth management solutions in Europe having doubled assets under management to €24bn over the last year.

Utmost said that with further acquisitions in the pipeline, the business is on track to reach its near-term target of €30bn assets under management.
