Excellence Awards 2017 - Best Trade Bank in Eurasia/CIS: Raiffeisen

Awards | 1 August 2017

Eurasia CIS

Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) has scooped the award for Best Trade bank in Eurasia/CIS, in what was a very competitive category.

The bank continues to maintain a strong presence in Austria and Central and Eastern Europe, where it services 14 markets in the region through subsidiary banks.  

RBI was involved in a couple of notable deals in 2016, acting as lender and facility agent on a US$350m pre-export finance for Russian ultra-high grade anthracite exporter Siberian Anthracite.

It took the same role in a US$110m syndicated term loan facility for Dutch commodity trader Nidera.

"We thank all participants in TFR's poll who have voted for us," said Petra Rauscher, head of export finance, Raiffeisen Bank International.  

"The Best Trade Bank in CIS/Eurasia award confirms our efforts to be the best possible bank for our customers in trade finance and beyond."

Runners up: Commerzbank and HSBC (nine banks were nominated).
