Letter from the CEO to customers

Dear Customer,

Last May 14th, the Shareholders’ Meeting of Cattolica Assicurazioni voted in the new Board of Directors with a large majority, supporting the list proposed by the previous Board of Directors, appointing Davide Croff as Chairman and conferring on me the powers of Chief Executive Officer.

It is a great honour for me to be at the helm of Cattolica, a Group for which I have been working with passion and commitment since 2012. In recent years I have had the opportunity to be involved in all of the company’s main activities, ranging from Network Relations, Group Finance, Distribution and Strategic Marketing to General Management and the role of head of the company since the end of 2019.

As the Group's CEO, I want to focus on strengthening the relationship between Cattolica and its customers, alongside our agents and distributors. I want to invest in this relationship to provide you with innovative solutions and products every day that best meet your needs.

I began my career in insurance more than 30 years ago and it was in this area that I developed my professional experience. I have been fortunate to be able to interact with all the major players at national and international level, and I am proud to be able to capitalise on this experience by heading a Group as important as Cattolica Assicurazioni.

Working in insurance, especially for a company like Cattolica, gives me great pride and responsibility. We work in an industry that plays a crucial role not only in the economy, but also in the social system of our country.

Today we work with over 3.5 million clients, managing almost 30 billion euros, which we invest carefully and successfully. In a sustainable and profitable way, as is our nature and tradition. It is precisely because of the values and professional capabilities of Cattolica that you have chosen to entrust us with the safeguarding of your assets and interests, and it is my personal commitment to earn your trust on a daily basis.

We intend to continue this on journey by offering you excellent financial products and state-of-the-art insurance solutions that protect you and what matters most to you, to help you plan, support and protect your family’s most important decisions and your work. To do this we will continue to constantly improve and invest in our Agency and Distribution Network to further strengthen this important relationship that we have built over our 125-year history.

I have reminded our employees that the core of our work and commitment is the Client. You, the Customers. That you are and will continue to be the focus of our daily action.

I am convinced that with the support of Chairman Croff and the skills of the new members of the Board of Directors the company will take an increasingly leading role on the market, in its constant commitment to providing the best services to all of you.

Thank you for your confidence in me,

Carlo Ferraresi
