History and development

History and development

The bank through time

The development of Intesa Sanpaolo Bank is the development of the economic area as well as the social one, in which we operate from our beginnings on the local level and all the way to the formation into one of the central Slovenian banking institutions. The area used to occupy the coastal region primarily, but today it occupies the whole Slovenia.

The story of Intesa Sanpaolo Bank is also the story of a constant search for better and more modern banking solutions, from the first smart payment card to the first online video chat bank and the first digital wallet in Slovenia.

Developing advanced solutions

ntesa Sanpaolo Bank is the leading bank in Slovenia in the development of mobile and other advanced services. As the first in the country, it launched some key advanced services which later affected the broader financial, economic and social areas in Slovenia and the changes to the users’ purchasing habits.

2017: Digital signature of documents in the mobile bank for the conclusion of loans, savings and payments into mutual funds, without a visit to a branch

2016: The Wave2Pay mobile wallet for contactless card payment at points of sale using a mobile phone

2015: Mobile phone and QR code cashless payment at points of sale (instant payments) and quick money transfer between mobile phone users (instant money transfers) 

2011: Digital signature of bank transactions for paperless operation at the Bank’s branches

2008: Online bank with personal assistance and video chat

2005: Smart payment card equipped with chip technology for highest level payment security

1992: Activa, the first Slovenian payment card with a magnetic strip 

The development of online banking dates back to 1998, when the online bank for natural persons was launched, then in 2013 it was joined by a mobile bank for natural persons, and a year later by online and mobile banks for business users.

Discover the efforts of the Group at the international level and of Intesa Sanpaolo Bank in Slovenia in four selected areas of society and economy.

Optimal customer experience

At Intesa Sanpaolo Bank, we build customer satisfaction at multiple levels of operation. In this way we improve the quality of our services and develop mutually successful cooperation:

  • systematic monitoring of customer satisfaction
  • multichannel banking at the customer’s choice
  • innovative banking solutions, both branch-based and remote

The “Posluh (Listening) 100%” project is designed to help better understand the customers, their needs, wishes and expectations. There are many ways we can attune to their needs: through questions, telephone and online surveys, opinions, suggestions, complaints and compliments.

The Digical project embraces the development of multi-channel banking with a focus on digital banking solutions on the one hand and advanced banking branches on the other, all to maximize the customer experience.

Financial literacy of young people

Financial literacy programmes for young people are just part of the educational programmes of Intesa Sanpaolo, which are organized in cooperation with the Museum of Saving in Turin, where each year Intesa Sanpaolo Bank organizes educational workshops for children.

The workshops are called “It’s up to you” and are intended for students of higher grades of elementary schools. Each time they are accompanied by the symbol of the blue dolphin carrying the message “Swimming freely, thinking wisely”.

The workshops are conducted and implemented by a team of 16 trained volunteers, employees of Intesa Sanpaolo Bank’s various areas of operation. Most recently, 35 workshops were held at various elementary schools across Slovenia.

Encouraging circular economy

Circular economy is an alternative business model that aims to realize economic growth through the rational use of limited resources and thus to provide comprehensive care for the restoration of a company’s natural capital. Circular economy is more than a waste-free industry. It takes into account several aspects of business – the environmental, economic and social.
Intesa Sanpaolo is the world’s only banking group to partner with the Ellen Macarthur Foundation in financing business ideas and models that, on the one hand, help transform classic industry and, on the other, encourage investment in circular economy.

Intesa Sanpaolo Bank supports circular economy development initiatives at the level of Slovenia. For it, circular economy represents an opportunity to become a circular-oriented society, to gain a new competitive advantage and to become a reference country in the area of sustainable life and development in Europe.

Offer of sustainable funds

The EF Sustainable Global Equity, a new certified quality equity fund focused on sustainability-oriented companies, is one of the diverse offerings of the Eurizon funds exclusively marketed in Slovenia.

The fund is suitable for investors looking to save in a diversified global stock market and willing to take a higher risk for potentially expected higher returns.

Corporate identity

Corporate identity

About the name & corporate branding

The name of Intesa Sanpaolo Bank is derived from the internationally recognized name of the Intesa Sanpaolo Banking Group, which has been present on the Slovenian market for almost 20 years. For the first 5 years, the Bank acted as a member of the IMI Sanpaolo Group, which in 2007 merged with Banca Intesa to form the Intesa Sanpaolo Group.

The international name for the once regional bank is proof that the bond between the parent bank Intesa Sanpaolo, whose home is in Italy, and its subsidiary Intesa Sanpaolo Bank with Slovenian roots, has successfully passed the test of time.

The multicultural team spirit of the subsidiary banks across the wider part of Europe and the lasting commitment with the Italian parent bank are reflected today in both the service model and in advanced customer solutions, as well as in the more visible engagement within the financial and wider economic sectors.
