History

  • 2019

    Consolidation of activities

    Česká pojišťovna bought the insurance portfolio of Generali Pojišťovna. Together, the companies combined their activities and are now operating under a new name, Generali Česká pojišťovna. The biggest insurer in the Czech market was thus established.

  • 2015

    New owner

    Generali CEE Holding became the 100% owner of Česká pojišťovna.

  • 2008

    Part of Generali PPF Holding

    Česká pojišťovna became a member of Generali PPF Holding, combining insurance and other activities of both groups in Central and Eastern Europe.

  • 1991

    Privatisation

    Introduction of the 'free market' brought a competitive environment to the business. Privatisation took place the following year and a joint-stock company called Česká pojišťovna was established.

  • 1971

    New logo

    Three linden leaves became the basis for the new logo of Česká státní pojišťovna.

  • 1969

    Establishment of state insurance companies

    Česká státní pojišťovna (Czech State Insurance Company) and Slovenská státní pojišťovna (Slovak State Insurance Company) were established.

  • 1945-1948

    Insurance market monopoly

    By decree of the President of the Czechoslovak Republic, the whole contractual insurance industry was nationalised in 1945. In 1948, the insurance market became a monopoly with the five existing insurers merged into a single entity - Československá pojišťovna n.p.

  • 1927

    100 years since establishment of the insurance company

    The company donated a stained glass window to St. Vitus Cathedral on the occasion of its 100th birthday. První česká vzájemná pojišťovna (First Czech Mutual Insurance Company) had a Thun Chapel window made, depicting motifs related to threats to life and property.

  • 1909

    Extension of insurance products

    The 1920s brought rapid development of road traffic. In the early days of motoring, První česká vzájemná pojišťovna therefore came up with an offer of insurance for powered vehicles.

  • 1881

    Major claim

    To assist with the reconstruction of the National Theatre after the fire, the company paid 300,000 Austro-Hungarian guldens.

  • 1827
