UniCredit named "Best Distributor" in Austria

  • UniCredit was chosen to receive the European Structured Products & Derivatives Award as the best distributor of structured products in Austria

The 13th European Structured Products & Derivatives Conference took place in London on 11 and 12 February 2016. Prizes were awarded to the best companies in the area of structured products. UniCredit received first place in the "Best Distributor in Austria" category.

"We are very pleased to receive the award, which confirms the position held by UniCredit onemarkets as an active issuer in Austria. Working more closely with Bank Austria in 2015 allowed us to develop products that offered attractive alternatives for Austrian investors in a low interest rate environment", stated Frank Weingarts, UniCredit onemarkets expert for investment and leverage products.

"Awards like this also motivate us to develop further innovative ideas for investment opportunities in 2016”", stressed Fritz Galavics, Head of the Corporate Treasury Sales Austria department of UniCredit Bank Austria and Christian Noisternig, Head of department private customers for UniCredit Bank Austria.

Structured Retail Products Limited (SRP), with headquarters in London, New York, Hong Kong and Sofia operates the British financial portal "StructuredRetailProducts.com" and also offers, among other things, research, and information and educational material covering all aspects of structured products. The results of a European-wide survey of more than 1,200 institutional investors and companies in the financial industry that was conducted by the financial portal was a major factor in the award of the prizes.

The awards dealt with quantitative factors, such as business volume, as well as qualitative factors, such as pricing, understanding client needs, innovativeness and customer service.
