Generali won't bid to become Banco BPM's insurance partner - sources

MILAN (Reuters) - Italy’s Assicurazioni Generali (GASI.MI) will not present an offer to become the new insurance partner of the country’s third-largest bank, Banco BPM (BAMI.MI), two sources said.

    Earlier this month, a source said Generali was expected to be among four bidders together with smaller rival Cattolica (CASS.MI), Germany’s Allianz (ALVG.DE) and France’s Covea.

    Cattolica said on Wednesday it had filed a binding bid for the “bancassurance” partnership, offering to buy a majority of Popolare Vita and Avipop Assicurazioni.
