The major competitors of Unipolsai

Let us now take a closer look at the direct economic and sectoral environment of the Unipolsai group with a detailed presentation of its main competitors and adversaries in this market:

Prudential Insurance Company of America or PICA

This American company is one of the heavyweights in the world of financial services and offers different ranges of products and services in this sector. The group distributes life insurance, mutual funds, pension funds and also offers asset management to both individual and institutional clients throughout the United States and in more than thirty different countries.

Allianz 

this other group, German this time, is an insurance group but also the leader of this sector in the world. Allianz is also positioned on the world market of asset management, where it is currently number 4. Among other things, it is able to offer diversified services and products in the property and casualty insurance and life insurance segments and has a strong presence in Switzerland, France and Italy.

Zurich Insurance Group 

This other Swiss group is also in direct competition with Unipolsai. It is a Swiss insurance company based in Zurich, Switzerland and the largest insurance company in that country.

AXA Group 

Finally, the AXA Group is a French international group that also specializes in insurance and asset management. It has in fact extended its historical insurance activities to this second market since 1994 and has been expanding its position throughout Europe for several decades.


The major partners of Unipolsai

If you are familiar with Unipolsai's main competitors, you should also be able to identify the strategic partnerships that the group is likely to set up in the future and that will undoubtedly have a strong influence on its growth. Here are two concrete examples that will allow you to better understand their interest:

Banco BPM

A few years ago, the Unipolsai group made a strategic alliance with the Banco BPM banking group in the bancassurance sector. The two entities decided to create a joint venture in this sector to enable each party to position itself in the other's sector. Although this alliance has of course borne fruit, a few years later, when Unipolsai announced the reorganisation of its insurance and banking activities, the group also announced the end of this joint venture and therefore of this strategic partnership.

LBA

The second partnership we will talk about here is the one that was set up by Unipolsai with the LBA in the context of the Italian basketball championship in 2016. This partnership has in fact taken the form of the signing of a naming contract between the two parties, and this for the next three seasons. The partnership was set up through the new exclusive agency Infront, which manages the group's communications. This partnership has of course allowed Unipolsai to benefit from a very high visibility and a great publicity during these events, which are particularly followed by basketball fans in Italy.
