Kontrakty Weekly awards UkrSibbank twice
In 2013 UkrSibbank became one of the top three banks in two categories in the “Best Banks and Bankers” annual rating by Kontrakty, a weekly business publication. The bank was named the “Best Bank for Corporate Business” and the “Most Robust (Reliable) Bank with Foreign Capital.” UkrSibbank was also recognized as a leader in the category of “Best Banks Lending to the Agricultural Sector.”
The best players in the Ukrainian banking market were selected in ten categories by the editorial board of Kontrakty, experts of the Independent Association of Ukrainian Banks (IAUB), the Ukrainian Agri Business Club, Altana Capital, KPMG in Ukraine, Ernst & Young, Dragon Capital, and USAID Agroinvest project.
“UkrSibbank's breakthrough in corporate banking during the last 2 years has made us a major and respected player in this sphere of banking. Building from our UAH lending capacity even during the liquidity crises, from our customer friendly and pro active approach, from the quality combined with competitiveness of our products and from BNP Paribas name, network and support we have gained the trust of multinational corporates together with a material market share in this segment. We also pride ourselves in the significant increase of our footprint in the financing of the agri sector thanks to our understanding of the business model and our cutting edge solutions. We also highly value the other sectors of the economy and the local corporates that are import/export oriented and/or creating value. We have actively sold our cash management, trade finance and capital market (mainly FX) solutions to the great satisfaction of our clients. I would like also to thank my team whose professionalism contributed to the improvement of the image of UkrSibbank’s corporate banking on the market as well as my colleagues in operations and other business lines for their constant support and business understanding. We take this award as an encouragement to do more, further improve ourselves, gain and deserve everyday the recognition of our clients,” said Jean-Luc Deguel, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board, Head of the Corporate Banking at UkrSibbank BNP Paribas Group.
