The process of integrating the Czech and Slovak divisions of UniCredit Bank should be completed next year, said Strokendl on Monday. According to him, these organisational changes do not mean that the bank will be restricting its activities in Slovakia in any way or that clients should experience any negative effects. Quite the reverse, he said, adding that the concentration of capacities will enable the bank to intensify its activities. Plans are afoot to expand the number of branches.
