Businesses and brands

Banca IFIS is a bank listed on the STAR segment of Borsa Italiana (IF:IM) that operates in banking sectors with strong profit margins.
The Bank has adopted simple and highly-centralised organisational models, allowing to run the individual businesses through local networks and channels, rather than conventional branches. The key elements of our strategies are protecting our capital; investing our liquidity in activities offering adequate returns; and maintaining a high level of liquidity.

The brands through which the Banca IFIS Group operates, financing the real economy, are:

BII Banca IFIS Impresa, dedicated to short-term factoring, corporate banking (medium/long-term and structured finance), and leases (both operating and finance) for small, medium and micro enterprises. Banca IFIS Impresa operates both in Italy and abroad—especially in Poland, through the subsidiary IFIS Finance, which specialises in factoring services (import/export).

In 2017, we launched two new brands dedicated to specific business lending products: TiAnticipo, a digital financing service for companies that do business with Italy’s Public Administration (www.tianticipo.it); Credito Agricolo, which provides financial support to farming businesses with products designed specifically for this sector (CAP advances, advances on grants).

Banca IFIS Impresa targets SMEs that are not benefiting from the liquidity available in the market—including the companies that work with the Italian Public Administration. Banca IFIS Impresa provides several services:

  • Factoring: with its factoring service, Banca IFIS has a direct presence in business-to-business procurement relationships, allowing the customer to finance its trade receivables and the debtor to enter into customised payment plans. Banca IFIS Impresa offers different types of factoring solutions based on the needs of the company: non-recourse/recourse, export/import, direct/indirect, maturity, outright purchases (ATD, Acquisti a Titolo Definitivo in Italian), advances on future receivables, TiAnticipo for the acquisition of certified receivables;

 

  • Leasing: with the acquisition of the former Interbanca Group, Banca IFIS Impresa has now entered the market for both operating and finance leases. This is divided in:
    • Equipment Leasing, a product designed to help businesses and resellers invest in equipment for the IT, Telecoms, Office, Industrial, and Healthcare Equipment sectors;
    • Vehicle Leasing supporting independent contractors and firms in financing company cars and commercial vehicles;
    • Equipment rental: it allows the company to use a piece of equipment for a set period of time for a fee, avoiding obsolescence costs. This service is available for IT, Office, Industrial and Healthcare Equipment.
