The six rules for the success of your relationships

Training meeting on company premises


A training service in line with European continuity

In the period following the enactment of the regulatory framework known as “Basle II” the European Commission launched a competitive bidding process for the collection of data on the use of internal ratings of SMEs carried out by banks.

In 2007, on the basis of the data collected, the Commission published a document entitled “How to interact with the new rating culture”, which constituted a practical guide to bank financing for small and medium-sized companies.

The assumption was that both banks and SMEs could gain advantages from the establishment of credit relationships marked by collaboration and exchange of information, and on the basis of such an assumption, a series of “key rules for success” were published for the benefit of small and medium-sized companies in their relationships with banks.

The requirement to remain faithful to this principle, namely to the value of communication between banks and companies and the transparency of information, is even more profoundly felt in the current reality of the Italian situation, characterized by the presence of sometimes opposing forces, which can complicate the process of acquiring financing sources for small and medium-sized companies.

The economic recovery is gradually making its effects felt, including the requirement for small and medium-sized companies to return ro investing in order to support their own growth.

In this context, the banking system finds itself facing new challenges:

  • An ongoing process of aggregation in the sector;
  • Efficiency drives as regards operating costs;
  • Rethinking of business models.

At the same time the system must manage the burden, still relevant on its own balance sheets, of deteriorated loans.

These are all aspects which will continue to influence the economic results of banks for a long time to come.

All elements previously mentioned suggest that the adoption of selective lending policies on the part of banks will be a constant in the years to come.

The objective of the Rating Meeting on company premises is therefore to provide SMEs with content, instruments and operational insights in order to successfully manage relations with the credit sector.

Users of the service will be able to take advantage of the skills of professionals with proven experience in the banking sector.
