Since CDP’s foundation in 1850, we have provided financial support for public entities by deploying the resources deriving from postal funding. Classed as a “service of general economic interest”, we perform this activity in a spirit of complete transparency, accessibility and parity of treatment.
We are the catalyst for infrastructure development in Italy, supporting general-interest projects and companies involved in the supply of public services. This is achieved through corporate loans (to support company capital) and project finance (economic support for long-term projects), and also by participating in infrastructure equity funds that invest in innovative and responsible service sectors.
Since 1 January 2016, we have been the operator of the Revolving Fund for Development Cooperation.
