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 capitalisation of 54.2 billion euro as at end of June 2015. Intesa Sanpaolo is the leader in Italy in all business areas (retail, corporate, and wealth management). The Group offers its services to 11.1 million customers through a network of approximately 4,400 branches.
Intesa Sanpaolo has a selected presence in Central Eastern Europe and Middle Eastern and North African areas (12 countries, 8.3 million clients) and an international network of specialists in support of corporate customers spreads across 29 countries, in particular in the Middle East and North Africa and in those areas where Italian companies are most active, such as the United States, Brazil, Russia, India and China.
Conscious of the value of its activities in Italy and abroad, Intesa Sanpaolo promotes a style of growth that focuses on sustainable results and the creation of a process based on the trust deriving from customer and shareholder satisfaction, a sense of belonging on the part of its employees and close monitoring of the needs of the community and the local area. The Bank’s growth strategy aims at creating solid and sustainable values from economic and financial, social and environmental standpoints, built on the trust of all its stakeholders and based on its values.
