Gold medal at Global Investor’s 20 years celebration

Bank Austria Creditanstalt (BA-CA) and its Central and Eastern European operations were awarded for their long term achievements in the region. During Global Investor’s 20 years anniversary ceremony Thursday night in London, BA-CA was presented the “Award for 20 years of excellence in investment servicing – Central and Eastern Europe”. Only a few days earlier, BA-CA had won Euromoney’s Award for Excellence for Custody in Central and Eastern Europe 2006.

“Our local teams have proven to be very successful over years, and there will be significant additional opportunities for us considering the combined strength of UniCredit and BA-CA entities in future. It is our intention to further enhance the depth and breadth of service offerings we can bring to our clients, and such awards are certainly encouraging”, commented Michael Aschauer, Head of Custody at Bank Austria Creditanstalt.

Earlier this year BA-CA had won Global Finance’s “Best Sub-Custodians 2006 Review” in Central and Eastern Europe and in Austria. Together with its affiliates BA-CA also had dominated the rankings of Global Custodian’s Agent Banks in Emerging Markets Survey and Global Investor’s European sub-custody review.

Global Investor and Global Custodian are the two most important magazines for the custody industry. Global Custodian and Global Finance are based in the US, whereas Global Investor is part of the London-based Euromoney Group.
