Banca di Piacenza is a co-operative bank, with more than 16.000 shareholders, established in 1936.
In line with the principles and values of the co-operative banking model, Banca di Piacenza based in the heart of the prosperous Po River Valley in Northen Italy has always played a key role in funding the local real economy, lending to small and medium size enterprises (SMES), stimulating growth and boosting employment at local level.
The Banca di Piacenzacs key values are: trust between the Bank and its shareholders/clients, sound governance, resilience to adverse market conditions, close proximity to customers, social commitment and solidarity.
Our culture is based on the well known golden rule: to treat others as you wish to be treated yourself. Since our establishment, it has been the ethic that underlies every interaction with our shareholders/clients, with our customers, with our business partners and with each other. It is a way of life common to every Banca di Piacenza employee; we demonstrate our beliefs in the way we treat each other and by the example we set for one another. In all our interactions, we seek to deal with others as we would have them deal with us.
Our greatest asset is our people. We believe that each of us needs a sense of dignity, pride and satisfaction in what we do.
Because satisfying our shareholders/clients and customers depends on the united effort of many, we are most effective when we work together cooperatively, respecting each othercs contribution and importance. We believe that a continuous professional improvement and personal development are key to support the success of our Bank, and to improve our performance.
Doing this, we expect to achieve a fair and reasonable profit to ensure the prosperity of our Bank and to offer long-term benefits to our shareholders/clients, our customers and our employees.
Banca di Piacenza is committed to our local community and dedicated to social responsibility. Supporting local charities, universities, education projects, cultural initiatives, social goals is at the heart of everything we do.
