Our innovation strategy is focused on internal and external open collaboration. To reach this goal the Group Innovation department is in charge of studying and prototyping innovative solutions, managing strategic Fintech equity investments and partnerships, developing a culture of innovation at all levels of the organization through knowledge management and best practice sharing and defining the strategy of technical solutions application based on cognitive computing and artificial intelligence.
