BACEE – all about banks in New Europe
BACEE is a unique source of information on Central and Eastern Europe. Our goal is to identify and assess risks in Central/Eastern Europe and help member banks to develop business in this specific environment.
With an exclusive focus on the CEE region, BACEE covers all the 27 countries of Central and Eastern Europe (including the new EU member countries, South Eastern Europe incl. the former Yugoslavian Republic, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Central Asia and the Caucasus), and provides information on all CEE banks.
A large network of personal contacts in the member banks and other banks of Central and Eastern Europe is an advantage that gives BACEE an insider's view of the region.
By the request of its member banks, BACEE prepares bank reports that analyse CEE banks’ creditworthiness. Such reports may be used as basic input or additional information in a bank’s counterparty risk management system, and are useful when granting or reviewing bilateral credit limits.

Member banks may turn to BACEE also for other practical information on banks in CEE, such as name and co-ordinates of contact persons in different banks, ownership information, latest business figures, information on bond issues, syndications, current problems, etc. When receiving such requests, BACEE’s usual reaction time is between a few hours (basic information, personal contacts) and a few days, needed for the preparation of a full bank report.
BACEE also undertakes broader assignments, like the analysis of separate segments of the banking market in a certain country, overview of legislative issues, research for investment targets, etc.
