Our history and our vision
“CREDITO DI ROMAGNA S.P.A.” was established in july 2003 as a joint stock bank in Forlì, North-East of Italy, Emilia Romagna, by the initiative of primary local entrepreneurs and professionals. Even if we are a young organisation, particularly in the Italian financial sector, the aim of our management is to make of “CREDITO DI ROMAGNA S.P.A.” a point of reference for local private and corporate customers. This is the main commitment of our top management, and according to this vision, during our initial years of activity all our data have grown very rapidly. At present we hold 12 branches and more than 120 employees, with a core of highly skilled experts.
Despite the economic crisis, “CREDITO DI ROMAGNA S.P.A.” experienced in 2011 and 2012 a significant growth in deposits (increase of over 30% in the past 24 months) as well as in loans to customers (increase of over 16% in the past 24 months). This trend of growth continued also in the following years.
We strongly believe in the development of operations with the rest of the world, which is crucial in a region traditionally open to international trade and just for this reason an international department has been up and running since the establishment of the bank. Thanks to direct access to the swift network – since November 2006 – , we have begun to establish direct relationships with other banks all over the world ,without other intermediaries.
Our services include collections and payments, documentary credits and letter of credits, international guarantees, advances, exchange rate transactions with spots against forward, specialized advice to companies and private customers.
At present we already hold swift authenticated bilateral keys with about 400 banks established in about 85 different countries.
“CREDITO DI ROMANGA S.P.A.” has already achieved significant results both in terms of number of transactions and in terms of volumes, and further improved its position in the Italian banks ranking, as well as in the Italian regional and provincial ranking.
At present all the foreign operations of CREDITO DI ROMAGNA SpA are centralized at our Head Office in Forlì (FC), Italy, 47122 Via Ravegnana angolo Traiano Imperatore, so any documentary or collection operation concerning us must be routed to that physical address (see section “contact us”)
