GAN Assurances
Insurance

Plus ancienne compagnie d’assurance sur le marché français, Gan Assurances est un assureur généraliste qui accompagne les particuliers, les professionnels et les entreprises à chaque moment de leur vie.

Gan Assurances propose des contrats adaptés aux besoins d’1 million de clients (dont 330 000 entreprises) : auto, habitation, santé, prévoyance, épargne, banque, retraite, placements, garanties professionnelles…

Une gamme de produits complets qui témoigne de la constante évolution de la société. L’histoire de Gan Assurances débute en effet avec la création de deux compagnies d’assurances : La Royale (1786), qui deviendra en 1848 La Nationale, et Le Soleil (1829). En 1968, Le Groupe des Assurances Nationales (GAN), fusion de la Nationale, du Soleil et de la Caisse Fraternelle de Capitalisation naît. Et trente ans plus tard, en 1998, à l’issue d’une procédure de privatisation, Groupama acquiert Gan.

Gan Assurances, une société du Groupe Groupama
Le Groupe Groupama (composé des trois marques Groupama, Gan et Amaguiz) est aujourd’hui un des leaders du secteur de l’assurance, avec 33 500 collaborateurs, dont 8 000 à l’international, qui sont au service de 13 millions de sociétaires et clients.

Gan Assurances dispose de 1 026 agences sur tout le territoire. Il compte près de 1 000 Agents généraux, 2 000 collaborateurs d’agence et 1 700 salariés.

Une référence sur le marché des entreprises et des professionnels
Profitant de ce maillage, Gan Assurances a décidé en 2010 de lancer une nouvelle stratégie de marque « Assuré d’avancer » dont les valeurs sont esprit d’entreprise et d’initiative, audace et dynamisme, et le projet « Entreprendre », dont l’ambition est de faire de Gan Assurances « un assureur de référence sur le marché des professionnels et des entreprises ». A noter que 94%* des clients professionnels de Gan Assurances se disent satisfaits de leur relation avec leur assureur
