Zagrebacka banka BH
Zagrebacka, Italian bank UniCredit's BH subsidiary, has emerged from its merger with Universal Bank of Sarajevo looking strong. The merger has given it the largest branch network in the country and has almost doubled its assets.
The bank's net interest income grew by 30% last year and its total income was up 20%. Praise is also due for Raiffeisen International's BH subsidiary, whose assets grew by 47%, and whose leasing subsidiary performed particularly strongly.
