Wednesday evening, in a festive ceremony which also celebrated the 50th anniversary of Euromoney magazine, the “Awards for Excellence 2019” were presented in London. Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) and its subsidiaries won the award for being “Central and Eastern Europe’s Best Bank”. The excellent market position as well as product and service quality of RBI’s banking network in Central and Eastern Europa were further honored with “Best Bank” accolades for Bosnia and Hercegovina, Bulgaria, Kosovo and Ukraine.
“Consistency across markets – in innovation, profitability and growth – and an unswerving commitment to Central and Eastern Europe set Raiffeisen Bank International apart from its competitors during the awards period”, explained Euromoney its jury’s decision to select RBI.
Euromoney magazine was created in 1969 to cover the re-emergence of the international cross-border capital markets. The euromarket, after which the magazine is named, is the predecessor to today's mainstream global capital markets. Euromoney reported on, and championed, this market and its growth, in the process becoming the prime magazine of the wholesale financial world, its institutions and its users.
RBI regards Austria, where it is a leading corporate and investment bank, as well as Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) as its home market. 13 markets of the region are covered by subsidiary banks. Additionally, the RBI Group comprises numerous other financial service providers, for instance in leasing, asset management or M&A.
Around 47,000 employees service 16.3 million customers through more than 2,100 business outlets, the by far largest part thereof in CEE. RBI's shares are listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange. The Austrian Regional Raiffeisen Banks own around 58.8 per cent of the shares, the remainder is in free float. Within the Austrian Raiffeisen Banking Group, RBI is the central institute of the Regional Raiffeisen Banks and other affiliated credit institutions.
