BNP Paribas in Italy
Present in Italy since 1967 as BNP and since 1979 as Paribas, the BNP Paribas Group has been operating on the Italian market for more than 50 years.
In 2006, the French-origin banking group strengthened its presence in Italy with the acquisition of BNL which, as a result of the integration process, oversees the commercial banking activities.
Today Italy is for BNP Paribas one of its four domestic markets together with France, Belgium and Luxembourg. With the acquisition of BNL, and the presence of other Group companies, BNP Paribas offers Italian customers products and services, from the traditional to the more innovative, able to meet the needs of individuals, businesses and institutions.
For private customers the Group offers: savings, investment, insurance and pension products, private banking, mortgages, consumer credit and e-banking services.
For businesses, professionals and institutions BNP Paribas offers, through Group companies present in Italy, products and services able to support their needs and business strategies.
BNP Paribas is a leader in banking and financial services in Europe.
The BNL BNP Paribas Group’s partnership with Telethon is one of the major fund-raising projects in Europe: for more than 20 years the bank has worked alongside the Telethon Foundation, the non-profit organisation raising funds to support scientific research into genetic diseases, sharing values and a mission.
BNL BNP Paribas Group believes strongly that culture and art are a means of stimulating growth and the economic and social development of the country.
