ABOUT THIS COMPANY:The big Italian
Italy’s largest banking group Intesa Sanpaolo is the fruit of the 2007 merger between then-major Italian banks Banca Intesa and Sanpaolo IMI. With strong names and impressive market share, the newly created entity immediately established itself as a force to be reckoned with, gaining a market-leading position in Italy, as well as a mighty presence outside its home market in Eastern Europe and the countries of the Mediterranean basin.
