UniCredit named Best Bank in Central and Eastern Europe
AO UniCredit Bank received the 2015 Euromoney’s Awards for Excellence as “Best Bank in Russia” at the annual Euromoney Awards for Excellence dinner last night in London. 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.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as “Best Bank in Russia” by well-known international business magazine Euromoney”, says Mikhail Alekseev, CEO of UniCredit Bank, “It confirms strong position of UniCredit Bank on the Russian banking market as well as its solidity, efficiency and high quality of its services. We also contributed to achievements that allowed UniCredit to be recognized as “Best Transaction Services House in Central Eastern Europe” as UniCredit Bank is one of the key players in this market segment in Russia. I would like to congratulate all the Bank’s employees and share with them this new important success”.
“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.
Euromoney Awards for Excellence were determined by a jury of experienced journalists chaired by Euromoney’s publisher, Neil Osborn.
