Any hopes that emerging Europe could escape the worst of the crisis were dashed during the course of last year. But the best of the region’s banks nonetheless demonstrated that with a keen eye on risk management, a focus on liquidity and capital adequacy, and the drive to meet customers’ changing needs in the downturn, success can still be achieved. Here, we celebrate the strengths of the region’s key players during one of the most difficult years they’ve faced.
Best bank in the CEE-CIS region: Raiffeisen International
Best legal firm (capital markets and corporate actions): Salans
Best legal firm (debt capital markets): Linklaters
With so many of its network banks picking up individual accolades for their successes during 2009, Raiffeisen International is a worthy winner of our award for the CEE and CIS region’s best bank.
