Banca dello Stato of the Canton of Ticino was created in 1915 with the aim of promoting the economic development of the Canton and to offer Ticino’s population the possibility of investing their savings securely and profitably. A hundred years have passed since its creation and BancaStato has never failed in its important mission, firmly anchored in the law. Pursuant to the public mandate it received, the institution benefits from a State guarantee in the running of its business. As a bank historically linked to real estate mortgages, the range of services it delivers has gradually increased over the years. Thanks to over 400 employees working in 4 branches and 16 agencies spread all over the Canton, it can provide all the services and products of a global bank: from granting loans to private individuals and companies, to payment transactions, to retirement funds and wealth management services. The bank also has a wide range of electronic banking services and a capillary network of ATMs all over the Canton.
Given the ongoing uncertainty in the banking world due to the economic situation, BancaStato is a trustworthy, stable and competent partner capable of offering its clients the wide range of services that only large banks can provide, while always remaining close to its clients – a typical feature of an institution strongly rooted in its region.
