UniCredit SpA (UCG.MI) said Tuesday that it may eventually exit FinecoBank Spa (FBK.MI), after both companies' boards of directors took measures to allow Fineco to operate as an independent entity.
"As a fully independent company, Fineco would be able to fully focus on its own strategic development and standalone growth prospects," the Italian bank said.
Fineco, a multichannel bank within UniCredit, has limited synergies within the larger group, UniCredit said. To prepare for a potential exit, the banks have taken measures to reduce Fineco's credit exposure to UniCredit.
