Our structure is based on three complementary and synergic pillars: Asset Management and Private Banking, sectors in which we gradually established a foothold over the last few years and in which we intend to invest further, also through targeted acquisitions; the historical activity of Investment Banking (Corporate & Investment Banking), in which we have a leading position in Italy, with a deeply-rooted presence abroad; Consumer Banking activity, in which we have been pioneers in Italy ever since our foundation.
Our revenues are currently balanced between Corporate/Principal Investing (roughly 35%) and Retail/Private (around 65%) activities. Revenues from equity investments refer primarily to the 13% stake in Assicurazioni Generali (from valuation using the equity method).
Over the last few years we have diversified our lending, to ensure a balance between corporate and retail.
- in Wholesale Banking, our group concentrates on large corporate, and around half of lending is carried out abroad;
- our portfolio is diversified by business sector and is increasingly less concentrated;
- we are not present in FICC activities (fixed income, currencies and commodities), in the process of global restructuring, and nor even in problematic segments/products such as small Italian companies, the shipping market and real estate development.
- Consumer Banking accounts for roughly half of retail lending, with the remainder primarily residential mortgages;
- Consumer lending loan book is higly fragmented with a 24 month duration, personal loans rapresent more than half of the toal amount.
