Leading European business and finance magazine names UniCredit Best Bank for Transaction Services in Western Europe and Best Bank for Advisory in Central and Eastern Europe
UniCredit has been named Western Europe’s Best Bank for Transaction Services and Central and Eastern Europe’s Best Bank for Advisory at the Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2021. The wins come as part of a clutch of awards that also includes Best Bank in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“We are delighted to receive these awards, which are further recognition of both our continued hard work and strength of approach” says Andrea Orcel, CEO of UniCredit. “As ever, we continue to put clients at the very heart of what we do. My thanks go out to those clients for their trust and loyalty, as well as to our committed teams who have helped them with a range of different tools – from transaction banking services to tighten up everyday operations through to trusted advisory on capital raising and financing needs.”
With the accolade for Best Bank for Advisory in Central and Eastern Europe, UniCredit further cements its leadership in the region, with Euromoney saying “UniCredit once again leveraged its regional network, sectoral approach and careful market positioning to notch the largest number of announced deals in the 12 months to March 31, 2021.
UniCredit’s expertise in a range of sectors was amply demonstrated,” highlighting deals across financial institutions, infrastructure, renewable energy and technology.
The Western Europe’s Bank for Transaction Banking award comes as part of a growing recognition of UniCredit’s services, with Euromoney noting that “the bank has emerged as a leading provider of vital cash management products, such as virtual accounts" while also praising other cutting-edge services such as IBAN check and high-speed international payments.
This has been reflected in the bank’s awards success. In recent years, the bank has consistently picked up some of the most prestigious prizes available, including The Banker’s Best Transaction Bank in Western Europe in 2019, The Banker’s Best Bank for Supply Chain Finance in 2020, and Euromoney’s Best Bank for Transaction Services in CEE in 2020.
In addition UniCredit received separate recognition for several categories of Best in Service in Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (CEEMEA) in the Euromoney FX Survey 2021. For the second year running, UniCredit ranked number one in the Survey – achieving the top spot as Best in Service for Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (CEEMEA) in the following categories: Salesforce, Ability in Emerging Market Currencies, Client trading execution, Service and Research. These successes reflect our leading position in Central and Eastern Europe, highlighting our broad expertise in FX Sales and Trading, as well as the in-depth knowledge of our Research team.
