History

Established in 1974 as a data processing centre for the Veneto Chambers of Commerce, Cerved grew by continuously innovating its products and developing new businesses.
Thanks to the integration of other established industry players, such as Centrale dei Bilanci, Lince, Databank, Finservice, Honyvem, Consit, Jupiter and Recus, today it is a solid, dynamic company that has been leading the market for over 40 years.

Cerved owns 100% of the share capital of Cerved Rating Agency, the Italian rating agency specialising in the credit rating assessment of non-financial businesses and registered as a European rating agency.

Since 2014 the Group has been listed on the Italian stock exchange (Mercato Telematico Azionario), through its management holding company Cerved Information Solutions S.p.A., and it now stands out as one of the few Italian public companies whose entire shareholding base is represented by the market.

Since its listing Cerved has been a success story, marked by a high resilience, growth and cash generation that has almost doubled the value of its shares.

Cerved’s work is the result of the ideas and the professional expertise of our people. Every day the Group continues to gain new skills and develop technologies that further enhance the quality of our data, services and solutions.
