Corporate & Investment Banking (CIB)
Our specialisation is combined with our experience in understanding the needs of our clients and finding the best solutions for them, with the renowned expertise, reliability and discretion of our people.
We are the leading investment bank in Italy and have an expanding European presence.
International operations now account almost half of the corporate and investment banking division’s income.

Based on the new segmentation approved in the 2016-19 strategic plan, CIB now also includes Specialty Finance activities (factoring and credit management) with a view to strengthening the range of services offered to medium-sized enterprises:
