Direct access to companies in CEE

Erste Group is one of the leading providers of equity sales services in Central and Eastern Europe. Along with buying and selling shares and derivatives, we ensure that our clients have direct access to companies in the entire CEE region. By co-operating closely with our colleagues in the area, i.e. from the Czech Republic to Romania and from Poland to Croatia, Erste Group can tap a whole pool of information about the latest developments in a wide range of companies in Central and Eastern Europe. Our outstanding research enables our clients to select specific CEE shares from across all sectors and to professionally trade them through us.

Our clients

Among our institutional clients are fund managers of long-only funds and hedge funds as well as leading assets managers, private banks, and insurance companies from Western, Central, and Eastern Europe.

Your benefit

Our equity specialists identify investment objects in the entire CEE region that are optimally suited for our clients. Our advisory and support in investment decisions is based on years of experience in CEE equity trading and on information provided by our excellent Research team. In this process, we focus on the professional optimisation of our clients’ portfolios. We help our clients realise their respective opportunities and seize them efficiently.

Our strengths

Our know-how and our competence as regional specialist in Austria and Central and Eastern Europe are among our strengths. We can now also offer Turkey on the equity side, with our own local brokerage in Istanbul and analysts and sales traders on location. The local presence in the CEE region secures our direct access to the local equity markets through years of outstanding business relationships with a number of companies in our home market, Central and Eastern Europe. Our research has received numerous awards for its competence. It is no coincidence that in equity trading we are among the top three in terms of client trading volumes. A market share that speaks for itself.
