The internationally respected financial magazine emeafinance has named UniCredit Bulbank, the Bulgarian subsidiary of UniCredit Group, as the 'Best foreign bank in Bulgaria'. This is the outcome of an annual survey done by emeafinance where the financial institutions in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) were evaluated.

"The prize 'Best foreign bank in Bulgaria' is given to UniCredit Bulbank for its efforts and success in 2008", so Christopher Moore, CEO and Publisher of emeafinance. According to his statement, the jury was especially impressed by the achievements of UniCredit Bulbank.

"I'm very proud of our successful and dedicated team in Bulgaria and congratulate them", so Erich Hampel, chairman of Austria and CEE region and CEO of Bank Austria. "The ongoing financial market crisis and the global economic slowdown made 2008 a difficult year. This award is a confirmation of our successful business model. That also shows that our efforts and engagement are rewarded".
