CA IB Named Best Investment Bank
- Awards from Finance New Europe
- Investor conference in Kitzbühel starts tomorrow
The financial magazine Finance New Europe named CA IB the best investment bank in Central and Eastern Europe for the second time in a row. CA IB also took home first place for the best brokerage and the best custody in the region, and won an award for the best privatisation for its consulting of Britain's BAA in its takeover of Budapest airport.
"These awards underscore the leading role that UniCredit Group plays in investment banking in Central and Eastern Europe. We have every reason to be optimistic about this year too, and our order books are full in every country in which we are active," said Klaus Requat, senior manager of CA IB Corporate Finance.
Fritz Schweiger, chairman of the managing board of CA IB International Markets, feels that the company's structuring expertise is the key to its success. He explained: "We are always a step ahead of market developments and identify innovative solutions for our customers on the region's dynamic capital markets."
CA IB's traditional investor conference is starting at Hotel Lebenberg in Kitzbühel on Wednesday evening. This event, which is held at the beginning of every year, is a highlight for the Austrian equity market and will again be attracting a record number of attendees from throughout Europe and the USA to the popular winter sports resort. Representatives from 35 listed companies will be on hand to hold presentations and to speak personally with investors. All we have to do now is to wait and see if the legendary "Kitzbühel effect" will sweep over the Vienna exchange again.
