Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: UniCredit Group was formed by the merger of nine Italian banks, and subsequent incorporation with the German group HypoVereinsBank (including Bank Austria) and - more recently - the Italian Capitalia banking Group. UniCredit Group has a relevant presence in 17 countries,with about 148,000 employees and 9,000 branches.

UniCredit benefits from a strong European identity, extensive international presence and broad customer base.
Its strategic geographical positioning not only in one of western Europe’s wealthiest areas (Austria, Germany and Italy) but also in Eastern Europe, a region characterized by still remarkable structural strengths despite some cyclical weaknesses, gives the Group one of the region’s highest market shares. In the Central and Eastern Europe region UniCredit operates the largest international banking network with around 4,000 branches and outlets.

UniCredit benefits from a well - balanced revenues mix both by business lines (with the retail accounting for the 39% of the consolidated total revenues and the corporate and investment division accounting for the 38%) and by regions with more than 50% of the consolidated total revenues achieved outside Italy. Our business model is based on a customer centric approach implemented by a network that operates in multiple markets through our deeply rooted local banks. We are focused on strong specialization and a clear segmentation to fully exploit key competence to better serve our customers.
