The Group

About us

For 160 years, CNP Assurances has been protecting people against the risks of everyday life. Our Group is France's leading provider of life insurance and term creditor insurance, and the fifth largest insurance company in Brazil. With our life insurance, pension, personal risk insurance, health insurance and service offerings, we offer a response to the many changes affecting our policyholders' lives.

An insurance partner

In Europe, we develop and manage personal insurance products for our banking partners, such as La Banque Postale, BPCE, Banco Santander and UniCredit, as well as for mutual insurance companies, companies, local authorities and hospitals. We also have targeted offers for financial services companies interested in diversifying their product line-up. We are the leading personal insurer in France and the fourth largest life insurer in Europe.

In Latin America, we have operations in Brazil and Argentina. Through our subsidiary Caixa Seguradora (formerly Caixa Seguros), partner of the country's second largest state-owned bank, we are Brazil’s fifth largest insurance provider.
