Comment on operations

“The Banca IFIS Group has been growing for several years now, and continued to grow also in the first half of the year across all segments”, said Giovanni Bossi, Banca IFIS CEO. “Although the comparison with 2015, when the rebalancing of the government bond portfolio resulted in a 124,5 million Euro capital gain, doesn’t express the results in a fair way, we performed positively across all business areas in the first six months of 2016, and can thus confirm the targets for the upcoming quarters.”
