“In 2023, Banca Ifis achieved important results from an economic, industrial and sustainability perspective, reaching new highs in terms of profitability, with net profit at 160 million Euro, which, net of PPA, makes for an all-time record for the Bank. These results were accompanied by the Bank’s ability to generate value for the communities, consistent with the double bottom line approach that characterises our way of banking: creating profit and, at the same time, value for the territories. This approach has resulted in social investments – 7 million Euro over the three-year period 2022-2024 – and more than 30 initiatives implemented with the aim of developing projects with a high social impact. On the strength of these results, we will continue to work in the coming months with the aim of creating value for our country’s small and medium-sized enterprises and for all our stakeholders”, says Ernesto Fürstenberg Fassio, Chairman of Banca Ifis.

“2023 was a year of strong acceleration for Banca Ifis which saw us engaged in expanding the commercial offer, continuing the digital transformation path and consolidating the acquisition of Revalea Spa, that allowed us to achieve the targets set in the 2022-24 Business Plan in the field of Npls a whole year and a half ahead of schedule. Thanks to the achievement of 160 million euros of profits derived from industrial activities and the new dividend policy desired by Ernesto Fürstenberg Fassio, our Chair, we have increased our capacity to remunerate shareholders, and are now at the top of the market in terms of dividend yield. Despite an uncertain macroeconomic environment, we look forward to the coming months with confidence as we continue along the development path outlined in the Business Plan”, says Frederik Geertman, CEO of Banca Ifis.
