La Centrale Finanziaria Generale (“LCFG” or “La Centrale”) is a diversified and independent holding, operating both in Italy and abroad. It has a high standing and value-added shareholding structure, which combines a financial and a business culture.
The LCFG Group wants to be a point of reference for local small and medium size companies (the backbone of Italy’s economy) and banks.
The LCFG can boast directors of high professional standing and its shareholders include some of the major Italian and international financial and industrial groups such as Silvano Toti Holding S.p.A., Acciaierie Valbruna S.p.A., Return Holding S.p.A., and Somar S.p.A.. This structure enables LCFG to have a system of national and international political and economic relations, which are essential to develop business.
LCFG is reorganizing its activity by hinging it around 3 business units: BU SGR (majority and minority investment in high standing real estate and asset management companies), BU Corporate Finance (Financial Advisory, Debt Restructuring and Private Equity) and BU Finance Retail (for developing pool of financial services).
LCFG wants to adopt a “star-shaped” operational model characterized by outsourcing and corporate network relations with partners and consultants capable of ensuring business opportunities and the preservation of a lean and flexible cost structure.
