Raiffeisen Bank International Enters Equities Pact

The partnership is designed to enable RBI's corsporate clients to tap into the Franco-German firm's distribution capabilities in the equity market.

Vienna-headquartered Raiffeisen Bank International and Franco-German group ODDO BHF have agreed to partner on equity sales and equity research for Austria and Central and Eastern Europe.

The pact allows RBI’s corporate clients to benefit from ODDO BHF Group’s distribution capabilities in the stock market, gaining access to over 800 institutional investors in Europe and the US, RBI said in a statement. 

ODDO BHF provides a range of services including wealth management. 

The entire equity sales and institutional equity research team of RBI will become part of the ODDO BHF platform, aiming to maintain a leading position in research for Austrian issuers, expand the universe in CEE, and leverage the expertise of a network of over 80 analysts.

RBI’s corporate clients will continue to be supported in relation to equity transactions from its headquarters in Vienna and the network banks in the region.

In early November ODDO BHF appointed former senior Credit Suisse figure Mischa Tschopp as head private wealth manager for the German client business. As for RBI, it also provides private banking and wealth management as part of its offerings.
