Intesa Sanpaolo is the banking group which was formed by the merger of Banca Intesa and Sanpaolo IMI. The merger brought together two major Italian banks with shared values so as to increase their opportunities for growth, enhance service for retail customers, significantly support the development of businesses and make an important contribution to the country’s growth.
Intesa Sanpaolo is among the top banking groups in the euro zone, with a market capitalization of 36.8 billion euro.
Intesa Sanpaolo has a selected presence in Central Eastern Europe and Middle Eastern and North African areas with over 1,400 branches and 8.4 million customers belonging to the Group’s subsidiaries operating in retail and commercial banking in 12 countries.
Intesa Sanpaolo’s strategy is geared towards solid and sustainable value creation for all stakeholders with whom the Bank has relations. We are aiming at a sharp increase in profitability and efficiency while preserving a low risk profile, deriving from solid revenue creation, continuous cost management and dynamic credit and risk management, with efficient use of capital and liquidity. Significant excess capital and high growth / high value businesses with a European scale allow Intesa Sanpaolo ample strategic flexibility.
