The winners of this year’s awards are those banks that attended carefully to their customers’ needs in difficult markets and accomplished strong results while laying the foundations for future success. We are proud that UniCredit Bulbank took home the 2021 award for Best Bank in Bulgaria which is the fifth consecutive win for the bank.
