Ninth edition of the Concert for Milan
01 September 2021
On Sunday 12 September at 8.30 p.m., Filarmonica della Scala and Riccardo Chailly return to Piazza Duomo for a free concert in the heart of the city.
UniCredit - Main Partner of the Filarmonica della Scala since 2003 - is once again supporting the orchestra this year to offer a free symphonic concert that transforms the heart of Milan into an event hall under the stars.
Andrea Orcel, CEO of UniCredit, said: “Music, as well as art and culture, are at the heart of this country, and a fundamental part of Italy’s rich history and heritage. UniCredit is committed to championing this, increasing its accessibility to all, as we concretely showed through the launch of our new project to enhance our art collection. It is for this same reason that we continue to proudly support the Filarmonica della Scala orchestra as Main Partner since 2003. We are particularly pleased to be part of the concert in Milan’s Piazza Duomo, which has always been an incredible event for the community that is Milan.”
Maurizio Beretta, President of the Filarmonica della Scala, commented: "Over the years, the Concert for Milan has held symbolic value for the entire community bearing witness to the city's bond with its orchestra. The large number of participants and the level of the artistic offering make it an eagerly awaited event that brings music closer to an ever-wider audience, demonstrating Filarmonica della Scala’s continued cultural commitment with its constant activity in Italy and abroad".
As has become tradition, Riccardo Chailly will be on the podium conducting a program of musical tribute to Italy with masterpieces from the great composers. The concert opens with the famous Italian Symphony No. 4 in A major op. 90 by Mendelssohn, followed by the Italian Capriccio by Tchaikovsky and concluding with an excerpt from the ballet Romeo and Juliet by Prokofiev.
As in 2020, security requirements related to Covid-19 remain in place. The square will be set up with limited and spaced-out seating, organised in sectors with differentiated access. Access to the area is allowed only with the Green Pass.
The concert has free admission with compulsory booking from 6 September at 2.00 pm through www.ticketone.it.
UniCredit supports all the projects of the "Open Filarmonica" programme, which includes, in addition to the Concert for Milan, the cycle of open rehearsals for Milanese nonprofit organisations, the music education project for children "Sound, Music!" and scholarships for talented young musicians.

UniCredit named ‘Best Transaction Bank in Western Europe' at The Banker's 2021 Transaction Banking Awards
01 September 2021
Bank completes clean sweep of major Western European transaction banking awards, having also been recognised as ‘Western Europe’s Best Bank for Transaction Services’ in July’s Euromoney Awards for Excellence.
UniCredit has been named ‘Best Transaction Bank in Western Europe’ at The Banker’s 2021 Transaction Banking Awards – an accolade that sees the bank complete an impressive double of major transaction banking awards, having been recognised as ‘Western Europe’s Best Bank for Transaction Services’ at the Euromoney Awards for Excellence in July.
Judged by a panel of experts, The Banker’s Transaction Banking Awards single out the banks that have demonstrated a clear strategy and progress over the last year, as well as those that have gone above and beyond to serve clients and meet their evolving needs.
Commenting on the recent successes, Luca Corsini, UniCredit’s Head of Global Transaction Banking, commented: “Our clients lie at the heart of everything we do and as ever, we are dedicated to finding the best possible solutions to support them. Across the board, corporates have been looking to maximise liquidity and manage the complexities posed by the pandemic and we have risen capably to this demand – rolling out new cash management and open banking solutions to help them centralise their operations and optimise control.”
Turning to the theme of digitalisation, Corsini added: “Elsewhere, we have used both our own and our partners’ digital solutions – such as Trade Finance Gate and Trade Finance OCR – to lower the barriers to financing and risk mitigation, providing creative working capital solutions to help clients and their supply chains secure payments in a way that optimises balance sheet impact. Digitalisation will remain integral to how we shape the business moving forward.”
Indeed, these overarching sentiments were also echoed by The Banker’s independent judges: “We were impressed by UniCredit’s work to further the development of digital services for its clients, such as cash management solutions devised to support cash controls during the pandemic. The examples given helped to bring their importance to life.”
Notably, this year’s award marks the second time in three years that UniCredit has been crowned ‘Best Transaction Bank in Western Europe’ by the magazine – contributing to a burgeoning tradition of success in the region that also includes recognition as The Banker’s ‘Best Bank for Supply Chain Finance’ in 2020 and as the best global trade finance bank for customer service in Euromoney’s 2021 Trade Finance Survey.

2021 EBA EU-Wide Stress Test Results
30 July 2021
UniCredit was subject to the 2021 EU-wide stress test conducted by the European Banking Authority (EBA), in cooperation with the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), the European Central Bank (ECB), and the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB).
UniCredit notes the announcements made today by the EBA and the ECB on the EU-wide stress test and fully acknowledges the outcomes of this exercise.
The 2021 EU-wide stress test does not contain a pass/fail threshold and instead is designed to be used as an important source of information for the purposes of the SREP. The results will assist Competent Authorities in assessing UniCredit’s ability to meet applicable prudential requirements under stressed scenarios.
The adverse stress test scenario was set by the ECB/ESRB and covers a three year time horizon (2021-2023). The stress test has been carried out applying a static balance sheet assumption as of December 2020 and therefore does not take into account future business strategies and management actions. It is not a forecast of UniCredit profits.
UniCredit’s results are summarised below:
2023 fully loaded CET1r at 15.66% corresponding to 52bps higher than fully loaded CET1r as of December 2020
2023 transitional CET1r at 15.80% corresponding to 16bps lower than transitional CET1r as of December 2020
2023 fully loaded CET1r at 9.22% corresponding to 592bps lower than fully loaded CET1r as of December 2020
2023 transitional CET1r at 9.59%, corresponding to 637bps lower than transitional CET1r as of December 2020.
As a reminder, UniCredit's 2Q 2021 fully loaded CET1r is at 15.50% (transitional CET1r at 16.11%).
