UniCredit Markets & Investment Banking solidifies its market image in Austria and CEE

  • Uniform image for BA-CA and CA IB’s institutional business
  • CA IB managers vested with global responsibility

The UniCredit Group Division Markets & Investment Banking has unified its market image at the global level, in order to highlight its size and power as effectively as possible. Bank Austria Creditanstalt (BA-CA) and CA IB’s business with institutional customers and investment banking activities will now be pursued under the name "UniCredit Markets & Investment Banking" in Austria and Eastern Europe (CEE) as well.

CA IB, which is responsible for Institutional equities, M&A Advisory and Merchant Banking in Austria and CEE, will harness the vast resource of the Group in its customers’ interests. The heads of the CA IB units in 19 locations, including the unrivalled largest network in CEE, will ensure that cooperation with the other divisions of the UniCredit Group is further deepened, in order to provide an even better range of integrated services.

Global management functions
CA IB’s top management was also vested with responsibility for new tasks and is now poised to play a central role in enhancing cooperation between the local units:

Klaus Requat and Chris Perrin, Managing Directors of CA IB Corporate Finance Beratungs Ges.m.b.H., are now in charge of the Investment Banking Division of the UniCredit Group in Austria, CEE and the Middle East.

Martin Rauchenwald (Managing Director at CA IB International Markets AG) was appointed as director for the entire scope of the UniCredit Group’s equity business, and Fritz Schweiger (also a CA IB Managing Director) is now in charge of global institutional equity sales for the UniCredit Group. Martin Blum was promoted to his new position as chief strategist for EEMEA Economics and Fixed Income/FX for the Markets & Investment Banking Division.

Note to editors: in the future, please cite our analysts and experts from this division as "UniCredit (BA-CA)" or "UniCredit (CA IB)".
