CEE's best bank for wealth management 2018: Credit Suisse

Awards for Excellence 2018

With an onshore presence since 1993, Credit Suisse has long dominated private banking in Russia, despite a potential upset in 2015 when an investigation was launched into one of its bankers in the Russian business. As testimony to its depth of relationships in the region’s largest ultra-high net-worth market, the bank has instead gone from strength to strength.
