Renowned financial magazine honored RBI for "unswerving commitment" to the CEE region
Raiffeisenbank was named the "Best Bank" in Bulgaria by the renowned financial magazine Euromoney's Annual Awards for Excellence 2019.
"We achieved a loan portfolio growth well above the market average for the last financial year, with our new business volumes being of excellent quality. We have digitized the processes of opening an account and debit card and signing documents for consumer loan, we cooperate successfully with the fintech sector on a number of other projects. That's why we accept the Euromoney’s award as recognition of our focused efforts to be innovative, flexible and sustainable partner of business and citizens", said Oliver Roegl, Chairman of the MB, Raiffeisenbank.
In addition to Bulgaria, excellent market positions and product and service quality brought "Best Bank" prizes also to subsidiaries in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and Ukraine, and Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) was awarded as the "Best Bank in Central and Eastern Europe".
"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.

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.
