Equita and Bocconi University

Equita has been sustaining Bocconi University and Baffi Carefin's selected research projects since 2013, year in which we built a long-term partnership in order to encourage a debate on market structural elements, development factors and possible solutions for the growth of capital markets for Italian companies.

At Equita, we strive to remain at the cutting-edge of the analysis of market changes and new trends. A continuative collaboration with Bocconi University is aimed at achieving this specific goal.

Equta is an active “Partner Sostenitore” of Bocconi University by sponsoring the Bocconi Baffi Carefin - Centre for Applied Research on International Markets, Banking, Finance and Regulation.

Our annual event at Bocconi University - centered on a specific topic - attracts influential managers, professionals, politicians, professors and media to discuss matters of economic relevance.

Equita, in cooperation with Bocconi University and with the sponsorship of Borsa Italiana, awards the best Italian companies that distinguished themselves in Debt and Equity fund raising during the year. A panel of fourteen highly regarded judges, chaired and coordinatred by Francesco Perilli, President of Equita Group, selects the companies. The "Equita Best Strategy Awards" cover three categories:

  • Fund raising in Debt Capital Markets
  • Fund raising in Equity Capital Markets
  • Fund raising by small-mid cap companies in Equity Capital Markets
