PPF INSURANCE TIMELINE
In 2002 PPF Group has expanded into Russia's market, beginning to develop the services of insurance and consumer lending; the Group's insurance asset entered the market under the brand of Czech Insurance Company (Ceska pojistovna - one of the oldest insurers in Europe). In 2008 the process of restructuring Czech Insurance Company was completed. That resulted in better quality of customer service, a larger share of the Czech insurance market, and successful expansion into the Russia market.
The transformation was so successful that it attracted the attention of Assicurazioni Generali S.p.A. (“Generali”) – one of the Europe's largest insurers. The result was the establishment of Generali PPF Holding – a Generali and PPF Group joint venture where Czech Insurance Company is a key asset. In 2008 Czech Insurance Company, including its Russian branch, joined the new entity, Generali PPF Holding. The entity brought together insurers operating in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and other CIS countries. The holding company was owned by Assicurazioni Generali, an international insurer, and PPF Group.
In 2013, Generali and PPF Group reached an agreement on reallocation of interests in a joint venture, Generali PPF Holding, which controls the insurance assets in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, including Russia and CIS countries. The deal includes two stages: before 28 March 2013, acquiring of 25% in Generali PPF Holding by Generali, with the remaining 24% to be purchased by the end of 2014. Under the terms of the agreement Russian insurance assets have become a part of PPF Group.
