Commenting on the acquisition, Pietro Croce (MEROPE ASSET MANAGEMENT’s CEO) says: we are very pleased to have worked with BANCO BPM and CAMPAGNA & C. SPA to acquire this asset. Since we signed the preliminary agreement last December we worked for almost 10 months to reach the Closing and the final result.
The transaction was extremely complex and was possible thanks to the constant efforts of our team and our advisors.

Palazzo Bernasconi represents a Landmark in Milan. Together with our investors we are pleased to have it within our portfolio and proud for keeping such an important asset under Italian management.
