Vatican Bank launches its first official website

2013-07-31

For the first time ever, the Vatican Bank, or IOR, has launched its official website, available at www.ior.va

The website's launch comes as a consequence of the new transparency policy prompted by Pope Francis himself, who wants the bank to carry out its activities in the clearest possible way.

Even though the website is still extremely simple in its structure, however it contains useful information about the IORs governance, the services it offers and a list of contacts. Another useful section is the 'media' page, in which various links and documents, but also recent press releases can be found.

Ior.va also features a message specifically written for the website by the Bank's president, Ernst von Freyberg. In it, the German businessman says that IOR's 'mission is to serve the universal Church', and that it is 'engaged in a process of comprehensive reform.'
