Client Account Opening

What can you expect?

Thanks to this service our best assistance is given to our large, medium and small Italian corporate clients holding accounts with UniCredit in Italy. We provide a special desk with the aim of helping Italian customers to widen their presence abroad through the opening of non-resident accounts to carry out their import-export activities and/or the setting up of a subsidiary abroad.

The desk is active the other way around as well. It is i.e. ready to welcome customers introduced by our correspondent banks and interested in opening accounts with us in Italy, either as non-resident entities or as Italian subsidiaries of foreign parent companies.

How does it work?

Customers are literally taken by the hand through all account opening procedures until the newly opened account is up and running and a relationship manager has been assigned.

Client Account Opening works in two ways:

  • Through our direct presence abroad, i.e. banks and foreign branches.
  • Through the networks of our correspondent banks worldwide

What’s in it for you?

In both cases the best assistance is given, competitive prices are applied, an extremely diversified and wide range of products and services is offered and skilled relationship managers are at the customer's disposal.

Contacts with dedicated colleagues c/o the Group Banks are possible:

  • In case of both incoming and outgoing customer referrals.
  • Towards and from all countries where we are present.

We also negotiate and sign Cooperation Memorandums for customer referral processes with foreign correspondent banks in areas where we do not have a full-branch presence.
