Mediobanca Research, which comprises the Mediobanca Research department and R&S S.p.A., has compiled economic research on companies and financial markets, national and international, since Mediobanca itself was established in 1946.

Our research is distinguished for the quality of the information, objectivity and original methodology, and our publications have become essential working tools for financiers, business figures, researchers and institutional leaders, and followers of economics generally.

Among the Mediobanca Research area’s numerous collaborations we might mention the partnership with Il Sole24Ore to analyse the interim reports published by the leading listed industrial and financial groups.

The vast majority of the Mediobanca Research area’s publications are available free of charge on our website at www.mbres.it.

Our research covers two main areas: analysis of financial markets and corporate accounts.

Highlights in the first area include the daily calculation of the Italian stock market share index, which at its launch in 1997 represented the first application of the weighted free float in Italy, and calculation of the average yield on bonds listed in Italy, since 1986. A reconstruction of the stock market index since 1928, including the total return version, is updated regularly. Indices and Data contains detailed information on shares and bonds listed in Italy and the performance of the leading international markets, with historical data going back ten years or further, in some cases as far back as 1861. The work is unparalleled in the Italian financial information panorama. A survey of Italian mutual funds has also been published since 1992, and in a short space of time has established itself as a benchmark for measuring the industry’s performance.

The second area includes analysis of individual companies, which are always viewed from the group perspective, and compilations of aggregate data. Publications in the former area include the Leading Italian Companies, issued annually since 1966, the most authoritative classification of companies in Italy, the Calepino dell’azionista, published since 1956, which brings together essential data for listed Italian companies, and the R&S Annual Directory, launched in 1976, which analyses the structure of the leading industrial and financial Italian groups through extremely rigorous and detailed individual reports. Aggregate company data have been analysed since 1963, when the first edition of Financial Aggregates was published, now established as a vital tool for interpreting trends in Italian industry. A wide-ranging research project was launched in conjunction with Unioncamere in 2002, on medium-sized Italian companies, which is a landmark on this subject in terms of authoritativeness and cohesion. In 2010 the research was extended to include other European countries, in conjunction with Confindustria e Unioncamere, and with the involvement of other major European research institutions. Research on medium-sized enterprise has since been extended to comprise what is more broadly defined as the “fourth capitalism”, of which the Mediobanca Research area is one of the most authoritative advocates and promoters, including through initiatives such as the “Mediobanca prize for dynamic companies”, assigned annually since 2007.

Other regular surveys include the wine industry and utilities owned by local entities.
