The deal was signed in May 2023 with the Arma Partners team and will help Mediobanca create a digital economy franchise within its corporate and investment banking division.

In addition, working to the Mediobanca Group 2023-26 Strategic Plan, the partnership with Arma will help build a broader and more diversified European advisory platform. It will also generate business opportunities from synergies between the group’s division, mainly between CIB and wealth management.
