Alongside the CEE regional accolade, the results also see UniCredit retain its crown as the 'Best Bank for Transaction Services in Central & Eastern Europe', with Euromoney commenting: "As well as maintaining leading transaction services, advisory and markets franchises, the Italian group has shown consistent appetite for putting its balance sheet to work across the region".
The Euromoney Awards for Excellence were established in 1992 and are widely regarded as the definitive awards programme for the global banking industry, identifying 'the best of the best' in all countries offering banking services.
As in previous years, the judging criteria include profitability, demonstrable growth, relative outperformance compared with peers and the ability to adapt to changing market conditions and client needs.
