ISP: First quarter 2024 results - highlights

With a Net income of €2.3 billion, Intesa Sanpaolo’s first quarter 2024 was the best-ever start to the year, also thanks to a strong acceleration in Commissions and Insurance income. These high-quality results put the Group firmly on track to deliver a Net income above €8 billion in 2024.

Cash dividends accrued in Q1 totaled €1.6 billion, with a 70% cash payout ratio and dividend yield above 10% confirmed for the year. Earnings per share (EPS) grew 21% on a yearly basis.

In 2024, Intesa Sanpaolo will reward shareholders with a total distribution of at least €7.3 billion, including the €1.7 billion share buyback in June and the interim dividend paid in November. Additional capital distribution will be evaluated at the end of the year.

Intesa Sanpaolo’s tech transformation is moving quickly with €3 billion already invested as part of the Group’s four-year €5 billion plan (see more on Technology leadership). Even while investing aggressively in technology, costs are firmly under control, with the lowest-ever Cost/Income ratio in Q1.

Intesa Sanpaolo has a unique commissions-driven and efficient business model, supported by strong tech investments, that is ready to deliver in any interest rate environment, allowing the Group to take advantage of a rebound in Wealth Management when rates decline (see more on Wealth Management leadership).

Intesa Sanpaolo’s leadership in Wealth Management, Protection & Advisory is driven by over €1.3 trillion in Customer financial assets, fully-owned product factories, advanced digital channels, and client network of over 16,000 private bankers, financial advisors and relationship managers.
