Credito Valtellinese (Creval) is an Italian bank based in Sondrio, Lombardy, Italy. The company was a former component of FTSE Italia Mid Cap Index of the Borsa Italiana (Milan Stock Exchange), but was removed and added as a component of FTSE Italia Small Cap (it) Index in May 2017;[3] the bank was added back to the reserve list of FTSE Italia Mid Cap in August 2017.[4]

The bank is named after the area Valtellina. The bank had 363 branches in Northern Italy (as Credito Valtellinese),[5] 40 branches in Marche and Umbria (former Carifano), and 133 branches in Sicily (as Credito Siciliano).[5] Credito Siciliano had three more branches outside the Sicily Island.

It had a market share of 32% in Sondrio. However, only 2.9% in whole Lombardy region in terms of deposits, as of 30 June 2014, as well as only 1.7% in terms of branches as the 10th of Italy.[5]


Credito Valtellinese is a former co-operative bank based in Sondrio found in 1908, as Banca Piccolo Credito Valtellinese.[6] (Not to be confused with Banca Popolare di Sondrio) The bank expanded by the acquisition of Technoleasing (later Bancaperta) in the 1980s and Credito Artigiano in 1996, which was the parent company of Banca dell'Artigianato e dell'Industria. In 2002 Sicilian banks Banca Popolare Santa Venera in Acireale, Cassa San Giacomo in Caltagirone and Banca Regionale Sant'Angelo were merged to become Credito Siciliano. In 2008 Credito Piemontese, Cassa di Risparmio di Fano, Banca Cattolica di Montefiascone[7] and Credito del Lazio (former Banca della Ciociaria) joined.[8]

From 2004 to 2013, Creval was the minority shareholders of Banca di Cividale.

In 2016 the bank would be demutualized, as the bank was registered under the category Banca Popolare. A new law, Italian Law N°3/2015 required the bank with more than €8 billion total assets in that category, had to be transformed into a società per azioni. The withdrew price for the shareholders was set at €0.4747 per shares. At the same time, a plan to combine 10 shares to 1 new shares was announced.[9]
