Ifis vision

We are convinced that only a bank that is beneficial to the economy in which it operates, whilst, at the same time, knows how to obtain the right amount of profit from its actions, has the dignity to look forward and plan its future. What is fundamental in the way we operate are the three pillars we base our work and all our business lines on: control of risk-corrected profitability, of liquidity and of absorbed capital.

Ifis mission

Making the most of the Bank's capital and liquidity to allow businesses and households, even in difficulty, to optimize their financial resources. Becoming the benchmark in Italy in providing financial support to micro, small and medium-sized Italian companies, also on an international level. Allow to the highest possible number of debtors to return to being financially credible. Giving value to the savings of individuals and companies thanks to transparent and reliable proposals.
