German asset manager DWS and Italian insurance company Generali have agreed to expand their existing cooperation on unit-linked products.
The two groups will further strengthen their relationship in key European markets, making DWS one of the insurance group’s selected asset managers eligible for being selected by Generali’s subsidiaries in key European markets.
The agreement follows a selection process run by Assicurazioni Generali S.p.A. through its business unit Asset, Wealth and Investment Management to select a limited number of asset managers to partner with on specific solutions.
This collaboration is fully in line with the implementation of the Generali Group asset management strategy, announced in May 2017.
As per the agreement, DWS and Generali will provide unit-linked solutions in France, Switzerland, Italy and Germany as well as potentially in other countries.
