• Unicredit Banca - for private individuals, small and medium-sized businesses.

Since then, the company has significantly expanded its activities, acquiring shares of various European financial institutions. The most important institutions of UniCredit Group are located in Northern Italy, Austria, southern Germany. The branches of two major investment banks are located in Munich and Frankfurt. There is UniCredit Bank in the countries of Eastern and Central Europe, including the post-Soviet countries: its representation is in Russia, Ukraine, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia. Moscow has a subsidiary office of UniCredit Bank.
The expansion of UniCredit in Eastern Europe is primarily due to the lack of capital and technological development in the banking sector after the collapse of communism. UniCredit Group took advantage of the opportunity presented in the financial sector, held in many European countries after the fall of the Iron Curtain. In 1999, UniCredit signed privatization agreement with Pekao, one of Poland's largest banks. At the moment the group owns 52.93% of the shares of this bank.

Its registered office is located in Munich, and it is a member of the Cash Group. This is the name of cooperation between the four largest German private banks (Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, HypoVereinsbank and Postbank), whose ATMs can be used by customers of these banks without commission.
Since 1999, UniCredit Bank has started to work with the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The bank started with buying a controlling stock of shares of the Polish Pekao Bank, then the Slovak Pol'nobanca (now Unibanka), the Bulgarian Bulbank, the Croatian Splitska Banka. This policy continued in 2000 with the purchase of the largest Croatian bank Zagrebacka Banka, as well as the Romanian Demirbank, Czech Živnostenská Banka (UniCredit Bank Czech Republic and Slovakia).
