The Mps Group
Our origins date back to 1472, when the Republic of Siena decided to found the "Monte di Pietà" (a sort of pawnbroking agency) to help the needy, fight usury, and aid rural development at what was a difficult time in the city's history.
With the strength given by long experience as a local public bank, today we are one of the major banking organisations in Italy.
With over 24,000 employees, over 1,900 branches, and a strong sales-channel system, we offer an extensive range of banking and financial services to 4.5 million customers, in Italy and abroad.
We have a strong vocation for the retail world and for the world of households and small businesses. Commercial business in this area in fact accounts for some 57% of our results.
The group parent company Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena has been listed on the Milan Bourse since 1999, with market capitalisation of € 14.85 billion and assets of over € 158 billion.
