About us

digital, but human first

Guber Credit Management became a bank in 2018: the very first Italian bank to receive an ex novo authorization from the European Central Bank.

We are an Italian digital bank specialised in non-performing loan management and services for small and medium enterprises.

 

Digital is essential to us in order to be more efficient and transparent in providing our services. It helps us overcome physical distances and enables our clients to be more competitive.

Being digital for us does not mean virtual. Human relations are very important as much as building our clients’ trust, day by day.

 

This is why Guber decides to stay in touch with the companies since day one. We want to meet the entrepreneurs and know their objectives. Nowadays, this is what makes the difference in the banking world.
