The report is structured around Central and Eastern Europe. In preparing the report, data from state statistical services, central banks of the countries, annual reports of banks and other public sources of information were used. Actuality of data – as of January 1, 2017. In cases of lack of information at that date, the latest available data on the bank was used. In addition to regional analysis, the report also contains more detailed data by country: Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Turkey.
Who is number 1 on the market? Who has the best dynamics in the loan portfolio growth? Who is in the TOP10 by the number of SME clients? These and other practical issues, most likely, each market player is asked. Communicating with colleagues from different countries, we are constantly confronted with the lack of such information.
Taking into account practical experience in this field of research, we went further – we have decided to help market players to obtain the most objective information not only on the market as a whole, but also on each bank. Moreover we compare with banks from other countries. Thus, giving an additional impetus to international communication and exchange of experience between banks of different countries.
