Raiffeisen Bank International AG (RBI)
Raiffeisen Bank International AG (RBI) regards Austria, where it is a leading corporate and investment bank, as well as Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) as its home market. 13 markets of the region are covered by subsidiary banks. Additionally, the group comprises numerous other financial service providers, for instance in the fields of leasing, asset management, as well as M&A. To support its business activities, RBI operates representative offices and service branches at selected Asian and Western European locations.
Around 47,000 employees service 16.1 million customers through more than 2,100 business outlets, the by far largest part thereof in CEE. RBI's shares have been listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange since 2005.
RBI is Austria's second-largest bank with a balance sheet total of € 140 billion (as per 31 December 2018). The Austrian Regional Raiffeisen Banks hold approximately 58.8 per cent of the shares, the remainder of around 41.2 per cent is free-float.
RBI was already active in CEE even before the process of political transition started in the region and the "Iron Curtain" fell: already back in 1986, its first subsidiary bank was founded in Hungary. Therefore, the bank looks back on more than 30 years of experience in the region's banking business.

UNIQA Insurance Group AG
The UNIQA Group is one of the leading insurance groups in its core markets of Austria and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). We have approximately 40 companies in 18 countries and serve about 10.1 million customers. With UNIQA and Raiffeisen Versicherung, we have the two strongest insurance brands in Austria and are well positioned in the CEE Markets.
To whom are we actually referring when we say "we"? "We" are around 20,000 UNIQA employees and employees of the general agencies working exclusively for UNIQA, approximately 6,000 of whom work in Austria. "We" are people from many different countries, with different native languages, ethnic origins and genders. "We" are a colourful, dedicated team united behind a common objective: offering our customers a degree of security that makes life easier for them and their families.
Investment and innovation programme:
We believe that the insurance industry is about to face some of the biggest shifts in its history. Digitalisation is leading to fundamental changes in customer expectations and behaviour. We believe that we must meet these challenges and we must embrace them as big opportunities. We transform our core business from a provider of insurance products to an integrated service provider that picks up their customers where they stand in their individual "environment of needs".
In order to set off the paradigm shift required for this surge of innovation, in 2016 we have launched the largest renewal programme in our history. We will invest in the next ten years a total of about €500 million in our future. These investments are mostly earmarked for the “re-design” of our business model, for the creation of competence in terms of personnel and the necessary IT systems.
