Intesa Sanpaolo supports all Italian companies in Italy and abroad in internationalisation processes, through dedicated structures, loans and trade and cash management products available in Italy and on the international network.

During 2016, 50 events were organised to give participants knowledge of markets and international business dynamics, and companies support for preparing international development plans (identifying qualified advice and assistance, operating support and local services in 84 countries representing the main markets of interest for Italian businesses).

With a view to increasing its size and presence on global markets, and to promote relations with major international groups, the Corporate and Investment Banking Division underwent a major reorganisation, to increase its specialisation in various sectors (industries) and provide assistance for business expansion abroad, through an international network in over 40 countries with branches and representative offices and coordinated by three hubs in London, New York and Hong Kong. Transaction Banking products were made available, with specific reference to advice and specialist assistance for Cash Management and Trade Finance. These initiatives are geared towards promoting the growth of companies and Italian Groups that are increasingly present on international markets.
