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.
