We help Italian companies to grow in Italy and abroad

to help Italy grow

We specialize in supporting Italian companies, especially SMEs, who want to grow in Italy and in the global market.

Through the synergy of integrated skills and insurance and financial services, we offer a unique operating model in the Italian panorama, dedicated to the economic development of the country.

Together we guide Italian companies in choosing markets and managing the risks associated with operating in new and often little-known geographies.

In addition to supporting them abroad, with a role enhanced by the extraordinary measures provided for by the Liquidity Decree, SACE also supports companies in Italy with the aim of helping them to strengthen liquidity, resilience and overall competitiveness. All this with an important focus on sustainability and support for the Green New Deal.
