Milan, November 30, 2015 – A few months after the launch of the Business Unit “Pharmacies”, dedicated to the financial support to pharmacies, Banca IFIS Pharma enriches its solutions with insurance services dedicated to pharmacists, announcing a partnership with MetLife, a worldwide insurance group with over 100 million customers and independent leader in Italy for the supply of credit protection solutions. Through this agreement, Meetlife provides for the supply of an insurance plan dedicated to pharmacies who sign a medium-long term financing contract with Banca IFIS.
The MetLife insurance program for Banca IFIS is an efficient tool available for customers who wants to obtain finance in complete transparency and safety.
