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.

For over 70 years Mediobanca has helped its clients to grow, with high-quality advisory services and a complete range of credit solutions, from the simplest and most traditional products to the most sophisticated solutions available on financial markets.

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. Its expansion began in 2004 with the opening of the Paris office and since then has continued with the opening of offices in the main international markets: Luxembourg (2005), New York (2006), Madrid (2007), Frankfurt (2007) and London (2008).
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:
  • Credit management (MBCredit Solutions): from niche operator to leading player in credit management, including acquisition and servicing of NPL portfolios;
  • Factoring (MBFacta): expanding the client and distribution base


Mediobanca supports businesses from the very beginning

Tailored services: focus on service personalisation rather than standardisation

Efficient structure: cost/income ratio about 40%, among the best in the sector

Trading plays a marginal role compared to other major investment banks

How our Corporate and Investment Banking business has evolved: higher profitability and more efficient use of capital

  • Coverage of medium/large companies changed to create greater synergies
  • International presence expanded
  • Greater opportunities offered by the macroeconomic context, leading to concentration in various sectors (especially in banking, in light of European regulations)
  • Low risk profile maintained, while preserving asset quality: Mediobanca is in a perfect position in terms of liquidity and sources of financing
