Swiss Life to sell Italian insurance business to bancApulia

09.08.2006

As previously announced, Swiss Life is withdrawing from the Italian insurance market. Swiss Life is to sell both of its Italian insurance subsidiaries ─ which with a staff of 23 generated around CHF 20 million in gross premium income in 2005 ─ to the Italian banking group bancApulia. Swiss Life will continue to offer global employee benefits solutions to its major international clients in Italy via the Swiss Life Network.

For the bancApulia group this acquisition represents further expansion in the area of bancassurance.

Subject to the approval of the relevant authorities, the transaction is expected to be concluded in the fourth quarter of 2006.
