The Plan confirms the role of Intesa Sanpaolo as a real economy Bank and seeks to generate sustainable profitability to create value for all stakeholders, starting with our customers to whom we wish to offer an ever more personalised, innovative and complete service, with over 300 billion euro contributed to the economy over the four-year period.
