Competition
Skandia Vita
 provide a complete
range of products, but
not a real and
continuous product
innovation
 unique and
sophisticated product
requiring a high-level
advice and financial
culture
 exploiting different
business models
(captive networks,
agreements or JV):
they penetrate in all
the networks with a
tailor-made offer
 operating model
through distribution
agreements thus
maintaining an
independent touch (i.e.
such a model is quite
unique on the market)
 potentially affected by
conflicts of interests
 independence ensures
no conflicts of interest
 strong brand
awareness
 low brand awareness
among end-clients,
leverage on our
partner’s brands

 Since 2001 the first Fas partnerships have emerged
and since then FAs have become the primary
distribution channel
 In 2005 the guided open architecture platform has
been launched . Since then, dynamic investment
solutions, requiring high-level financial culture and
targeting mostly FAs networks have become our main
and most successful Distribution Channel.
