Banca Etica

The idea behind Banca Etica consists in creating a place where savers, driven by the common desire of a more transparent and responsible management of financial resources, may meet socio-economic initiatives, inspired by the values of a sustainable social and human development.

The bank manages savings raised from private citizens, as singles or families, organisations, companies and institutions in general, and invests them in initiatives pursuing both social and economic objectives, operating in full respect of human dignity and the environment.

In such context Banca Etica sets out to educate both savers and borrowers by enhancing the awareness of the formers about their saving’s destination, and encouraging the latter to develop their management and entrepreneurial abilities.

Banca Etica does not set out to reject the basic rules of finance, but it rather seeks to reform its main values.
