About Us

We have been investing in the Italy of the future since 1850

Our mission

We foster sustainable development in Italy, using the country’s savings responsibly to support growth and boost employment, supporting innovation, business competitiveness, infrastructure and local development.

We finance the infrastructure and investments of public administrations and the country. We support policies to improve the real estate assets of local authorities for urban regeneration, we invest in social infrastructure, sustainable mobility and new forms of housing. We offer integrated support to local authorities through traditional financing activities and technical consultancy services for all stages of public works.

We support the development of the Italian entrepreneurial fabric, also internationally, by providing tools and expertise. By offering integrated financing, equity and advisory services, we contribute to the growth of productive sectors and the strengthening of the private equity and venture capital market in Italy.

We have been the Italian National Promotional Institute since 2015. This role has allowed us to broaden the scope of our activities, offering financial advice to public administration bodies for the use of national and European funds and mobilising financial resources from other public and private entities.

To assist in the implementation of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan we support central and local governments with dedicated technical and financial advisory services.

We are also the Italian Financial Institution for Development Cooperation. In this role, we finance high-impact economic, environmental and social initiatives in strategic sectors and promote specialised programmes for climate change, financial inclusion and women's entrepreneurship in developing countries and emerging markets.
