We provide comprehensive support to companies that have business relations with foreign countries.
We deal with mediation and advice both for international contexts and for the trade of goods and services. We assist companies in developing joint ventures, opening foreign subsidiaries and selling assets to customers located outside the country.
Through the two macro-areas of expertise of our international division, International Corporate Finance and Trade Finance, we offer qualified advice to companies wishing to operate in a supranational environment.
INTERNATIONAL CORPORATE FINANCE
In order to be open to the international market and to interact with local banking and financial operators, you need to have strong skills.
The most requested transactions concern foreign bank credit, leasing and factoring on foreign markets, financing for internationalization, structured finance and equity participation of funds related to foreign or multinational entities.
Our team of experts is able to accompany you step by step in all these operations until you reach your business goals.
Trade Finance is closely related to international trade, and involves a thorough knowledge of specific products.
Our team can provide you with expert advice on export credit, factoring and forfeiting, credit insurance, sureties, risk coverage, guarantees and investment protection.
FINANCING FOR THE INTERNATIONALIZATION
We can support you in the integration programs in foreign markets, low-interest loans for investments linked to export and internationalisation activities, and low-interest loans to capitalise small and medium-sized exporting enterprises.
We are also able to provide support for subsidised public funding for the international development of businesses. We also provide ordinary financing for the development of foreign subsidiaries, through OpeEx Financing (financing of foreign banks to support the needs of working capital by foreign subsidiaries) and CapEx Financing (financing for the purchase of capital goods for the benefit of foreign subsidiaries).
We are experts in export credit, implemented through specific lines of credit granted at competitive rates by leading Italian and foreign institutions, based on the insurance of underlying commercial credits. Our areas of expertise include supplier credit, buyer credit, project finance and documentary credit confirmation.
EXPORT FACTORING AND FORTAITING
Our team provides advice in Export Factoring, that is in the demobilization of short-term credits to foreign debtors, using traditional or customized factoring solutions.
We are experts in Forfaiting, a transaction that involves the collection in pro solute of commercial credit certificates, received by the Italian company providing an asset against an export, and the granting to the foreign importer of payment deferrals in the medium term.
We are also able to manage Import Factoring, the transaction by which a factoring company liquidates a foreign supplier, allowing the Italian importer to benefit from a payment delay.
INSURANCE OF FOREIGN CREDIT
We have a long experience in the risk insurance of non-payment of foreign credits, for commercial and political reasons, through the partnership with leading international companies. Our areas of expertise include both global coverage, with full foreign turnover insurance, and partial coverage, with the insurance of turnover related to repeated transactions to a specific market or to a selected group of foreign customers.
SECURITIES AND RISK COVERAGE
We help your company improve its supply competitiveness.
If you decide to take part in tenders and contracts for the assignment of works abroad, we provide you with advice on deposits and cover against the risks associated with the construction of plants and works.
INVESTMENT PROTECTION AND FINANCIAL GUARANTEES
We facilitate access to credit for your company, through coverage of funding provided by the banking system for activities abroad. We deal with financial guarantees aimed at growth in international markets (internationalization guarantee), for investments abroad, (investment guarantee) and for the financing of foreign subsidiaries (working capital guarantee). We are also experts in Export Development Funds for foreign growth and investment protection projects.
PARTICIPATION IN THE CAPITAL OF FUNDS
