Interview with Giorgio Callegari, Chairman and CEO of Generali Russia & CIS
6 years ago, Generali, the international insurance group, strengthened its position in the Russian market by becoming Ingosstrakh’s minority shareholder. Despite major changes in global politics, the well-known international insurer still maintains an interest in the Russian market, and is willing to increase its influence, is working out its presence policy in the Russian Federation for the next period, expects to receive dividends and is focused on the development of the insurance business in Russia. Mr. Giorgio Callegari, Chairman and CEO of Generali Russia & CIS, told Interfax about all this in an interview.
