UniCredit Bank Austria named “Best Bank in Austria”

  • Bank named best in Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Central & Eastern Europe (as well as best for Transaction Services in CEE) and Germany

UniCredit has won six awards at this year’s Euromoney Awards for Excellence, achieving
recognition across the following categories:

  • Best Bank in Austria
  • Best Bank in Bulgaria
  • Best Bank in Bosnia & Herzegovina
  • Best Bank in Germany 
  • Best Bank in Central & Eastern Europe
  • Best Bank for Transaction Services in Central & Eastern Europe

"My special thanks go to our customers for their trust and also to our employees for their commitment, which made this award possible in the first place. Especially in these currently challenging times, this award is further confirmation for us that we are a solid partner for our customers, regardless of whether they are companies or private customers, and that they can count on us especially in economically difficult times", said Robert Zadrazil, CEO of UniCredit Bank Austria.

The Euromoney Awards for Excellence were established in 1992 and are widely regarded as
the definitive awards programme for the global banking industry, identifying ‘the best of the
best’ in all countries offering banking services.

As in previous years, the judging criteria include profitability, demonstrable growth, relative
outperformance compared with peers and the ability to adapt to changing market conditions
and client needs.

Alongside the six regional accolades, the results also see UniCredit retain its crown as the
‘Best Bank for Transaction Services in Central & Eastern Europe’, with Euromoney
commenting: “As well as maintaining leading transaction services, advisory and markets
franchises, the Italian group has shown consistent appetite for putting its balance sheet to
work across the region”.

Jean Pierre Mustier, CEO of UniCredit, said: “Being recognised by Euromoney as the best
bank across these markets is clear testament to the tremendous work our teams are doing
and to our continued efforts to support clients across the Group. I am very proud of these
awards and would like to personally thank each of our employees across Europe who
continue to work tirelessly to help us deliver on our commitments.”
