ON-LINE DEPOSITS GO INTERNATIONAL
Soon after the Italian launch, we entered Spanish and German deposit markets.

We started cross-border activities in Croatia and opened a new branch in Lisbon.
IOS FINANCE ACQUISITION
We reinforced our leadership in Spain with IOS Finance. We started cross-border activities in France and opened a branch in Poland. We entered Polish and Dutch deposit markets.
Eight years after the start of the internationalization process with the entry in the Spanish and Portuguese markets, followed by Central and Eastern Europe in 2016, then Greece and Croatia, respectively in 2017 and 2018, BFF was further consolidating the integration of all its entities, under a new common group identity: “BFF Banking Group”.
The rebranding further enhanced the consolidated expertise we matured in more than 30 years of activity, together with the knowledge and commitment in each local market.
The common brand further strengthens our positioning as the only pan-European platform able to cover the financial needs of companies supplying goods and services to the public sector in multiple markets.
