The Fintech ecosystem represents a unique opportunity to accelerate innovation.
Intesa Sanpaolo has developed a structured approach to Fintech, consistent with our industrial plan goals; we defined the rationales for choosing between “make” or “buy” and set a model for cooperation with Big Tech & Fintech. By using our “Innovation Funnel”, we start with benchmarking activities (executed internally and through our Fintech Ecosystem partners) in order to select the best solutions and accelerate the technology transfer within the Group, paying the utmost attention not to increase our risk profile.
We are agnostic towards technology and partners profile, as we select solutions able to rapidly scale up and to create value for our customers or for improving our internal efficiency.
