Such an opportunity has been promptly and effectively taken up under the direction of Managing Director Nicola Maria Fioravanti. Our leadership is now consolidated and recognised by the market," continued Maranzana. "The results of this half year corroborate our reputation by providing our Insurance Group with a decidedly strong profile".
Managing Director Nicola Maria Fioravanti commented with satisfaction: "An increase of over 33% in financial results compared to the same period for the previous year is a significant and absolutely relevant result, given that 2014 was recorded as one of the best years for the Insurance Group".
"The outcome of the collaboration with the distribution networks of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group is obvious and I am sure it will be increasingly significant" continued Fioravanti. "We have all the winning elements for this purpose: cutting-edge products in terms of innovation and flexibility, the highest level management and the strength of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group.
The excellent results of the first half of 2015 constitute a springboard for the challenges that await us in the second half of the year".
