Generali’s CEO pushes ahead with balance sheet clean-up

MILAN, March 14 (Reuters) – New Chief Executive Mario Greco
sought to make a clean slate at Generali by carrying
out large writedowns on the insurer’s assets in 2012 while still
managing to beat an operating profit target and improving
capital strength.

Italy’s No.1 insurer on Thursday posted full-year net profit
of 90 million euros ($116.55 million) after net impairments of
1.7 billion euros on available for sale assets, loans, real
estate assets and on its indirect investment in Telecom Italia
.
