UniCredit launches sustainable finance advisory team

UniCredit has launched Sustainable Finance Advisory team, a move that will see the Bank combine sustainability expertise with capital markets execution in order to deepen client dialogue around ESG-related topics and facilitate access to Europe's green financing market.

The newly-created team will be headed by Antonio Keglevich, former head of Sustainability Bond Origination and now global head of Sustainable Finance Advisory - his appointment is effective immediately and he will continue to be based in Munich, reporting to Goffredo Guizzardi and Christian Reusch, co-heads of Global Finance & Advisory.

Part of UniCredit Corporate & Investment Banking and fully-plugged in to the wider Group, UniCredit's Sustainable Finance Advisory team will advise clients on brown to green transition strategies whilst supporting the origination of ESG finance mandates with corporates, financials and SSAs across the entire value chain.

The team will work alongside UniCredit's existing Equator Principles Advisory team. Both teams will work in alignment to define eligible project categories.
