We have been investing in the Italy of the future since 1850
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 support the innovation, growth and internationalisation of small, medium and large companies. We make our financial and industrial expertise, from within the Group and our subsidiaries, available to companies to develop synergies in the production chain and between different sectors.
We finance infrastructure, investments in public administrations and the country. We support policies to enhance the real estate assets of local authorities, we invest in social and educational buildings and we support energy efficiency policies. We provide financial and technical consultancy support for public administrations, during project planning and design phases.
In 2015, we were confirmed as the National Promotional Institute (NPI) by the Italian Government and the European Union. This new role has enabled us to expand the scope of our business activities, becoming the entry point for the Investment Plan for Europe (“Junker Plan”), financial advisor for public administrations using national and European funds and an investment catalyser for public and private entities.
We have been the Italian Development Finance Institution since 2016. In this role we aim to become key players in the strategy to promote sustainable development on a global scale.
We act with full awareness of our role at the service of the country. We assess the economic, social and environmental impact of our actions from a long-term perspective
Our wealth of knowledge and experience is a distinguishing factor in promoting initiatives in the many areas in which we operate. We invest in our people on an ongoing basis
We are determined in our decisions, even the most difficult. We operate responsibly, but without fear, when we are convinced that the path we have taken is the right one to achieve the best result for the community
We believe in teamwork, in the ability to listen and the strength of dialogue. This is the spirit that guides us, at home and abroad, in our relations with our partners, be they institutions, companies, territories or the financial system, in Italy and abroad
There are many events that have marked our journey with the country. 170 years of projects and investment for Italy's growth.
