UniCredit named Best Bank in Central and Eastern Europe
Group wins nine Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2015
Vienna, July 10, 2015 – Euromoney, the prestigious UK-based financial markets magazine, has presented UniCredit with nine Awards for Excellence this year, including Best Bank in Central Eastern Europe, Best Debt House in Central Eastern Europe and Best Transaction Services House in Central Eastern Europe.
“I am delighted by Euromoney’s extensive recognition of our services and thank all of our staff for their hard work,” said Carlo Vivaldi, Head of CEE Division at UniCredit. “The economic development of Central and Eastern Europe is increasingly diverging. New member states in the region have particularly benefited from their integration with the European Union, as demand for their products and services has risen significantly in the eurozone. In this climate, UniCredit’s broad regional footprint is proving to be both balanced and resilient. While our competitors are scaling back their businesses, we are fine-tuning our services and investing in new banking technologies,” Mr. Vivaldi added.
The awards, presented at the annual Euromoney Awards for Excellence dinner last night in London, were determined by a jury of experienced journalists chaired by Euromoney’s publisher, Neil Osborn.
Below is the complete list of UniCredit’s Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2015:
• Best Bank in Central Eastern Europe
