RBI concludes cooperation agreement with Banco Santander

Vienna-based Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) and Spanish Banco Santander, S.A.
have recently concluded a cooperation agreement regarding the mutual referral
and servicing of corporate customers. Especially small and medium-sized enterprises
and large international corporations are targeted to benefit from the partner banks’
service offerings on their respective home markets.

While RBI is clearly focused on Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), Banco Santander is
active in Europe and the Americas.
