Welcome to EMEA Finance’s Europe Banking Awards 2019 editorial feature. This awards package celebrates twelve years that we have recognized the achievements of the region’s retail and investment banks, asset managers, and brokers. These awards afford special attention through our CEE & CIS level winners to banks and financial institutions that are pushing the industry forward with new and innovative products and services, excelling in investment banking, increasing the number of banked individuals, and giving back to the community through their corporate social responsibility programmes.
The digitization revolution is coming to fore, and many of our winners who have for many years diligently prepared for these rapid changes, are well positioned to manage many of the challenges that the Covid-19 crisis presents. We are, however, mainly looking backwards into last year, which was a very good one generally for the banking sector across most of Europe even with trade tensions and a heightened sense that the global economy was due for a cooling down.
This year’s Europe Banking Awards 2019 editorial feature highlights the achievements registered by our CEE & CIS level winners and a select number of the region’s countries. These reports explore the performances of the winners and provide some general context for the countries where they operate. We also include exclusive insights from our winning firms’ leaderships who outline their strategies and highlight their more important accomplishments registered in 2019. Congratulations to
all our winners on your many successes.
