People are for Equita a real valuable asset and it is thanks to their dedication, determination and hard work that Equita is able to serve its clients in the best manner.
Equita invests in training young professionals, both internally and externally, by selecting specific programmes. Since 2013, Equita has been a partner of Università Bocconi to improve knowledge of capital markets and analyse new developments and new market trends.
Equita is committed to developing and retaining the best talents, choosing young people from the best Italian universities and investing in their growth at every step of their career.
Equita offers an internal training program, based on rotation of young professionals within its several departments, to help them understand how the entire "company machine" works.
In addition, senior professionals sponsor a series of internal lectures and conferences on financial topics of specific interest, the "EQUITA Cineforum", which allow junior resources or figures from other business areas to gain insights about issues that are beyond their area or which they want to better understand.
However, development of people is also addressed towards the outside, to social community in general. For example Equita promotes the development of young artists in innovative contexts and formats.
Equita hosts works of painters, photographers and other artists in the halls and corridors of its offices, transforming them into real art galleries and allowing its clients and employees to admire the works and, if they wish, to buy them.
Equita has also signed a partnership with the Accademia delle Belle Arti di Brera to create value through an initiative that rewards talented young people, and by teaching and performing research in arts, in one of the most important places of culture and art in Milan.
In 2018 Equita will award the Equita Award for Brera (to promote the Accademia Aperta initiative that takes place between July and August each year) selecting and purchasing three artworks chosen by a joint committee made up of members from Equita, Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera and Domus Editoriale.
Equita has also provided scholarships for students of the Accademia and contributions for teaching and research dedicated to assistants.
