Annual industry awards recognise UniCredit's excellence both as a distributor in its core markets and as Europe's best private bank
UniCredit's retail and private banking networks have once again been recognised for their achievements in the distribution of structured products and certificates, coming away with a clutch of awards at Structured Retail Products' SRP Europe Conference 2019, including:
- Best Distributor, Germany & Austria
- Best Distributor, Italy
- Best Distributor / Best Performance, Austria
- Best Distributor / Best Performance, Slovakia
Algis Pabarcius, UniCredit's Head of Markets Sales, said: "We are delighted to have been recognised by SRP at this year's conference, with these outstanding achievements the result of our fully plugged-in CIB. Our clients receive the highest standard of customer service, benefiting from close synergies with our distribution networks."
UniCredit's Private Investor Products team is responsible for the distribution of Markets products across all asset classes to the Group's extensive client franchise. Acting as a sales organisation and product manufacturer, it develops best-in-class solutions to meet a broad spectrum of investment needs.
The SRP awards remain the only quant-driven, independent awards for the structured products industry and are based on sales volume and performance data. This year's results are the culmination of a comprehensive data analysis performed by the publication covering the period of 1 October 2017 to 30 September 2018.
At the same event, UniCredit Private Banking was also recognised as the Best Private Bank Europe.
Pabarcius added: "Our primary focus is to help our clients gain greater control over their portfolios. The number of our private banking clients investing in structured products and certificates remains at a consistently high-level in Germany and across CEE. In addition, Italy and Austria have experienced 10% growth during the time surveyed."
