For activities concerning Sustainability and Social Responsibility, the companies of our Group have received prestigious awards from important public and private institutions.
Banco BPM is the first institution in Italy in leveraged buy-outs (acquisitions with financial leverage) in the 2017 – 2020 period. The ranking, made available by the company Mergermarket, the reference database for the M&A market, recognises service quality, reputation and the capacity to take advantage of all market opportunities, including large ones, without overlooking SMEs, as demonstrated by the average size of the transactions.
In the Services – Innovation of Banking Services category, the Jury declared the Clarity project the winner “for having initiated a comprehensive overhaul of HR processes, in which technological innovation is used as an enabling factor for change within the broader idea of Banco BPM’s People Strategy”.
For the prestigious award, Banco BPM was finalist in the “Listed financial companies” category and was recognised for its 2019 Consolidated Non-Financial Statement.
