1. Trends in CEE banking (Roland Kraus - FinanceTuner)
Several studies give evidence: gross earnings of eastern European banks is double in size of western european banks. Austrian banks and international bank corporations report fastest increases in CEE.  But the progress will be different in some CEE markets, also services and price levels. This is an additional challenge for the local management and corporate cash management.                                                                                                

2. More transparency with Benchmarks (Roland Kraus - FinanceTuner)
What are acceptable terms and conditions for financial services? With FinanceTuner’s support and benchmarks  best performance in cash management is guaranteed.
