Nevena Krasteva, Editor-in-Chief of SeeNews magazine:
“The pandemic caused us to fundamentally change our behavior. It has made us more mobile, more agile, through the effective application of digitization. Agility and flexibility are the words that appear in every article in the 14th edition of the SEE TOP 100, always side by side with digitization. A sector that emerged as a clear champion in 2020 is e-commerce, as the pandemic-induced crisis only accelerated an existing major shift in consumer habits. New extremely flexible financing options, a quick access to a vast range of products and an upsurge in innovation are the silver lining of the crisis”.
The 14th edition of the " TOP 100 SEE ranking of the biggest companies, banks, and insurers in the region of Southeast Europe in 2020" includes more than 200 banks in the region, including branches and subsidiaries of foreign banks. The report is based on financial information on total assets and net profit for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, compared to data for 2019 from the unconsolidated annual reports of the companies.
