Opens new office in Bhubhaneshwar

Bhubhaneshwar, March 19, 2009:  Future Generali, the Insurance joint venture between Future Group of India and Generali Group of Italy, opens its new branch office premise in Bhubhaneshwar today.  

Future Generali Insurance had adopted a unique business model offering Total Insurance Solutions, across Life & General Insurance, wherein all the insurance needs of customers can be serviced through every touch point of the company. Future Generali also sells through their unique Mallassurance™ channel, providing select Insurance options of Life and General Insurance through Future Group retail outlets across the country.

Future Generali is currently active through 100 offices across 80 cities and over 25000 licensed advisors. Besides this large network of agents & branches, Future Generali also actively offers their Insurance solutions across 250 Malls and 700 Alliance partners.

On the occasion, Mr. Jayant Khosla, CEO – Future Generali India Life Insurance Co. Ltd, said “One of our key priorities this year, has been expanding our service network to successfully reach out to customers across the country with our Total Insurance Solutions. At Future Generali we believe in providing consistently superior service through a range of innovative products & solutions. As a new player, we look forward to establishing strong & long term, mutually beneficial relationships with customers. We are proud to carry the rich heritage of the Future Group & Generali Group, and believe our rapid growth in a relatively short period since launch and in these challenging circumstances, is testimony to the tremendous goodwill that both these Groups enjoy.”

”We are delighted to launch our operations in Bhubhaneshwar. This re-iterates our focus on the state and the Eastern region. Even in small towns we are seeing an increase in per capita income and savings potential, thereby growing the market significantly. The opportunity is large and growing - insurance penetration in India is still significantly lower than other developed economies like the UK - not to mention the fact that a good number of Indians are largely underinsured, or do not have any form of insurance for their most precious non-life assets. Our focus will remain on providing our customers Total Insurance solutions through every one of our touch points– be it a branch, agent, distributor or Mallassurance outlet.” said Mr. Deepak Sood, CEO – Future Generali India Insurance Co. Ltd.

”The economic uncertainty across the globe has made people more acutely aware of how fragile financial security can be, and the importance of securing it. As a result of the environment and the growth of the Insurance industry itself, insurance awareness all over India has increased. Even in small towns we see an increase in per capita income and savings potential, thus increasing the potential of the market significantly – not to mention the fact that most Indians are terribly underinsured, or do not have any form of insurance for their most valuable non-life assets. We want to provide convenience of reach to customers in this regard. Our focus will remain on providing our customers Total Insurance solutions through every one of our touch points.” said Mr. Deepak Sood, CEO – Future Generali India Insurance Co. Ltd.
