CASSA Depositi e Prestiti (CDP) has been driving economic and social development in Italy since 1850. In the early days it held postal savings deposits and extended municipal credit. CDP now has some 27 million savers on its books and €34.6bn in resources mobilised by the group. CDP represents the National Promotion Institute, which makes it an entry point for the Juncker Investment Plan for Europe and the Italian Financial Institution for Development Co-operation. The group has pledged €110bn — activating €90bn in external resources — to the UN’s 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals. The BV judging panel announces CDP as the 2020 Best Investment Banking Services (Italy) award.
