We have been investing in the Italy of the future since 1850
We foster the development of the Country, using national savings responsibly in order to support growth and boost employment, leveraging on innovation, business competitiveness, infrastructure and local development.
We support the innovation, growth and internationalization of small, medium and large companies. We lend companies our wealth of knowledge and experience in finance and industry, gained through all our Group and subsidiary companies, to develop synergies in production chains and between different sectors.
We finance public administration and local infrastructure and investment, we support policies to enhance local authority real estate assets, we invest in social and educational buildings and we support energy efficiency policies. We provide financial and technical consultancy support for the public administration during the stages of works planning and design.
In 2015, we were recognised as a National Promotion Institute (NPI) by the Italian Government and the European Union. This new role has allowed us to expand our business perimeter, becoming the entry point for Investment Plan for Europe ("Juncker Plan") funding, financial advisor to the public administration for the use of national and European funds and an investment catalyser for other public and private bodies.
We have been the Italian Development Finance Institution since 2016. In this role we aim to become protagonists 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
