GSS Newsletter December 2017 - Issue 200

Dear Clients, Partners and Friends,

When it comes to taking up important positions in official bodies across the countries we operate in, the expertise of the staff of UniCredit GSS is always welcome. We can proudly report that the Head of UniCredit GSS Russia, Natasha Sidorova, has been confirmed in her role as the Chairperson of the Customer Committee for Quality Control and Risk Management at the Russian CSD.

With the Christmas season fast arriving, our colleague Vanda Močnik Kohek from Slovenia has contributed a heart-warming story about the festive traditions in her home country. Echoing Vanda’s remarks, I would like to wish our readers a smooth and trouble-free countdown towards the end of the year!
