NN Group is not only managing its product portfolio by launching innovations. We look at the overall picture of the market positions of each product - both present and projected. Based on this analysis we allocate resources optimally between the different products, identify areas of potential improvement and balance our product mix to ensure profitability and sustainability.
Examples of managing discontinued products are our individual life closed block in the Netherlands and our variable annuities closed block in Japan.
