EFG International informs about BSI offices in Italy
5 May 2017
EFG International announces that BSI has received a notification by Banca d’Italia requesting the implementation of certain measures, which may result in a closure of the BSI offices in Milan and Como. The measures relate to alleged administrative weaknesses pre-dating the completion of EFG’s acquisition of BSI. EFG is assessing the legal situation and is in contact with Banca d’Italia, inter alia because the policies, procedures and other measures enacted upon completion of the acquisition of BSI by EFG in November 2016 have not been considered. The BSI Milan and Como offices, which focus on onshore services, combine less than CHF 1 billion in assets under management.
