UniCredit CIB Americas

About us

Our branch office in New York, along with our representative office in Sao Paulo, gives us a strong presence in the Americas. Our Americas unit offers a full range of banking services to European corporates, financial sponsors, financial institutions, and institutional investors with operations in the Americas, as well as to American corporate and institutional clients with operations in our home markets of Italy, Germany, Austria and the CEE region.

 

We also integrate advisory services into our financial products - offering guidance on product implementation, as well as finding opportunities in new markets.


In particular, our expertise in the European markets makes us ideally positioned to help guide corporates in the Americas through the challenges of European expansion, and to help European corporates to establish their presence in the Americas.
