LONDON (Reuters) – Italian insurer Assicurazioni Generali (MI:) has dropped out from the sale of the asset management arm of Dutch rival NN Group NV, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.
Europe’s third biggest insurer initially looked at submitting a possible bid for the unit which oversees assets linked to NN’s life insurance products but was put off by its competitive valuation, one of the sources said.
