UniCredit Bank Czech Republic a.s. launched its activities in the Czech market on 5 November 2007. It came into being through the integration of two independently operating and successful banking institutions – Živnostenská banka and HVB Bank.
UniCredit Bank Czech Republic a.s. is a strong and rapidly developing bank offering a wide range of quality products to both corporate and private clients. It is one of the market’s strongest banks in the area of project, structured and syndicated corporate finance. The Bank has also built an extraordinarily strong position in acquisition financing and ranks first in financing commercial real estate.
Among other services, UniCredit Bank’s clients can utilise services to obtain project financing from the EU structural funds offered through UniCredit Bank’s European Competence Centre. In 2005, the Bank’s subsidiary UniCredit Factoring (formerly HVB Factoring) began actively to provide factoring services.
In the sphere of services for private clients, UniCredit Bank plays a significant role on the market for private banking, securities, credit cards and mortgages, and it is doing very well in serving clients in the freelance professions (doctors, judges, attorneys-at-law, notaries, and others). The Bank’s Competence Centre for Freelance Professions is devoted to these clients.
