It is useful to know that
The 'Supervisory registers and lists' are managed and published by the Bank of Italy to meet its public disclosure obligations under the Consolidated Laws on banking and finance. These statutory obligations are linked to the Bank of Italy's role as supervisor of banks and financial intermediaries.
What are they?
The consultation service for the 'Supervisory registers and lists' allows anyone interested to know whether a bank or financial intermediary is registered in the relevant supervisory register and what financial services it is authorized to provide to the public.
The types of financial intermediaries listed are: asset management companies, securities investment firms, financial intermediaries that provide various forms of credit (leasing, factoring, consumer credit, loans secured by pledge of one fifth of salary or pension, etc.), institutions that offer payment services (payment institutions - PIs and electronic money institutions - EMIs).
You can also find the names of the agents used by PIs/EMIs and the foreign intermediaries authorized to operate in Italy.
The main information available includes:
• registration numbers
• names of intermediaries/banks and so on
• registered offices and administrative headquarters
• registration and deletion dates
• activities conducted by the intermediaries
You can also consult the list of intermediaries that are not authorized to engage in banking or financial activities in Italy and of intermediaries that have been reported for having issued guarantees to the public without a license.
