29.11.2019 - RBI again awarded "Bank of the Year in Central and Eastern Europe"

  • RBI was awarded "Bank of the Year in Central and Eastern Europe" by The Banker for the twelfth time.
  • Three RBI subsidiaries also named "Bank of the Year" in their markets.
  • Slovak subsidiary honored as "Best Digital Bank in the World" by Global Finance.

At the end of November 2019, Raiffeisen Bank International AG (RBI) received the "Bank of the Year in Central and Eastern Europe" award for the twelfth time from The Banker, the Financial Times magazine. In addition, its subsidiary banks in Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as Ukraine were named "Bank of the Year 2019" for their respective markets.

Only a few weeks earlier, the financial magazine Global Finance honored the most innovative banks. Tatra banka, RBI's Slovakian subsidiary, was named the world's most innovative digital bank. The decisive factor here was the bank's successful digital strategy, which is reflected in its extensive online product portfolio, an attractive website and, ultimately, a corresponding increase in online customers.

"I consider the awards as confirmation of our focus on customer experience, especially with regard to digitization," said Johann Strobl, CEO of RBI.
