  • UniCredit was awarded "Best Distributor" for structured products in its core markets and voted Best Private Bank in Europe
  • UniCredit Bank Austria again named "Best Distributor" for structured products in Austria

UniCredit’s retail and private banking networks have once again been recognised for their achievements in the distribution of structured products and certificates, coming away with a clutch of awards at Structured Retail Products’ SRP Europe Conference 2019, including: 

  • "Best Distributor", Germany & Austria
  • "Best Distributor", Italy
  • "Best Distributor / Best Performance", Austria 
  • "Best Distributor / Best Performance", Slovakia

Mauro Maschio, UniCredit Bank Austria Management Board member responsible for Privatkundenbank, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised by SRP at this year’s conference. These outstanding achievements highlight what a fully plugged-in CIB concretely means for our clients and are the result of increasingly close synergies with our distribution networks.”

UniCredit’s Private Investor Products team is responsible for the distribution of Markets products across all asset classes to the Group’s extensive client franchise. Acting as a sales organisation and product manufacturer, it develops best-in-class solutions to meet a broad spectrum of investment needs.

The SRP awards remain the only quant-driven, independent awards for the structured products industry and are based on sales volume and performance data. This year’s results are the culmination of a comprehensive data analysis performed by the publication covering the period of 1 October 2017 to 30 September 2018.

At the same event, UniCredit Private Banking was also recognised as the Best Private Bank Europe.

Fritz Galavics, Head of Markets Austria, said: “Our primary focus is to help our clients gain greater control over their portfolios. The number of our clients investing in structured products and certificates remains at a consistently high-level in Germany and across CEE. In addition, Italy and Austria have experienced 10% growth during the time surveyed.”

UniCredit Private Banking offers a full range of services and customisable products to over 260,000 clients in 14 European countries, addressing the complexity of markets with clear and transparent strategies to protect and optimize client wealth.
