- Triple honors at the Structured Retail Products Awards in London
- Once again Capital Markets Leader on the Warsaw Stock Exchange
- Plus point: Investment topics with certificates accessible to everyone
Vienna/London/Warsaw - Raiffeisen Centrobank has scored points at important European industry awards several times over the past few weeks. The Structured Retail Products (SRP) Europe Awards were presented in London back in March, and last week the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) hosted its annual award ceremony to honor the best market participants.
Raiffeisen Centrobank was the only Austrian certificate house to be nominated at the SRP Awards alongside international industry giants and was able to assert itself in three categories: Best Distributor Austria and Best Performance Austria as well as Best Performance Germany. The latter award also underlines the excellent work that RCB has been doing for years on the much larger German market. All of its certificates are also publicly offered in Germany and are listed on the major German stock exchanges in Stuttgart and Frankfurt.
Record activity with a total of 1,400 newly listed certificates in 2021 and the great commitment to customer information and transparency again led to the fact that the leading domestic certificate issuer was honored there for the fifth time as a capital market leader in the field of structured products.
For Heike Arbter, member of the RCB Management Board, the most recent international awards underscore both the special commitment of the RCB team and the increasing popularity of certificates as investment instruments: "To score with investors with a convincing range of products and excellent service quality, is our claim. I am particularly pleased that this has also been recognized internationally with awards. It is clear to me that certificates can make an important contribution to wealth accumulation, especially in the current market environment.”
Make interesting investment topics easily accessible with certificates
RCB focuses on customer benefit when it comes to issuing new certificates. It is precisely with this service concept that RCB was able to gain plus points from the jury of the SRP Awards, but not only: the easy accessibility to themed investments for investors and the rapid picking up of market developments were central arguments in favor of RCB. The success proves RCB right, because the outstanding volume of sustainable certificates has quadrupled since 2018 alone. With the latest product innovations such as certificates on hydrogen or metaverse indices, RCB shows that it continues to have its finger on the pulse of investors.
