ROME, 02-Aug-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — Poste Italiane and UniCredit have signed today a letter of intent, with the aim of developing partnerships in the consumer credit market. The initial agreement concerns the promotion and sale, through the post office network, of salary and pension backed loans, underwritten by UniCredit specifically for public and private employees and pensioners, with the possibility of extending the agreement, at a later date, to include personal loans.
In line with Deliver 2022, Poste Italiane’s five-year strategic plan, this agreement marks a continuation of the Company’s drive to establish partnerships with leading banking groups, with the aim of further expanding the range of products and services distributed through its widespread network to over 34 million customers.
