Company Profile

Asigest SA

Main Office: Bucharest
Other offices: Chisinau

Established in 1994, Asigest is one of the main brokers in this emerging market, constantly present in the top 5.

Asigest is a full-service brokerage firm whose staff is experienced with multinational companies. Located in Southern Romania, Asigest handles many Italian based accounts, including Agip, a major Italian gas supplier, and Rifil, a subsidiary of an Italian group with seven yarn companies. Other major Italian clients are in the textile industry and in wood processing, including furniture makers. Automobile leasing companies constitute another major client group and represent about 2,500 individual accounts. Major local clients include the transportation industry and large retail operations, including Romania’s biggest pharmaceutical retailer.

Asigest handles all major types of coverage including motor, cargo, professional indemnity and property and casualty. The firm also has expertise in coverages for the construction and agriculture sectors - these two areas are the motor of economic growth in Romania. In order to better serve its clients in the agriculture sector, Asigest established a subsidiary "Asigest AGRI" in 2006. In addition, Asigest also offers personal lines policies for its clients’ management.

An interesting feature of the Romanian market is that employee benefits are not as developed yet as in many other countries.

Asigest is a founding member of UNSICAR (the National Union of Insurance Brokerage and Consultancy Societies) in Romania, established in 2000. Since 2002, Antonio Souvannasouck is a member of the UNSICAR Board.

Antonio previously participated in the establishment of three insurance companies, preparing marketing studies, budgets and policy documents. He gained experience in Italy at Generali Assicurazioni and holds a degree from Bucharest Polytechnic. Antonio has two children, and lives in Bucharest. He enjoys playing tennis and traveling.
