“We present the market with outstanding half-yearly results,” said Giovanni Bossi, Banca IFIS CEO, adding: “They prove once more that Banca IFIS’s model works, the actions taken are effective, and the Group is on an innovative path that will stand the test of time. The Bank’s current equity will allow all core businesses to grow steadily.
Bolstering our capital base allows us to tackle market challenges with assurance. In light of the results achieved – stressed Mr. Bossi – and the evidence pointing to favourable operating performance expected in the second half of the year, the Board of Directors believes it possible to propose an increase of the dividend per share by 10 to 15% compared to 2014”.
