Translated version of this PSD: Serbian
A senior loan of up to €60 million to UniCredit Bank Serbia JSC ("UCB") for mortgage lending.
The proceeds of the loan will be used by UCB to provide long-term financing for residential mortgage lending in Serbia.
Transition impact is expected to derive from the expansion of the mortgage market in Serbia through provision of long term funding. Mortgage penetration remains low in Serbia and mortgage lending has further room for growth subject to availability of sufficiently long-term funding.
UNICREDIT BANK SERBIA JSC
With total assets of EUR 3.7 billion as at end-2018, UCB is one of the leading and largest universal banks in Serbia with strong foothold in corporate and consumer lending. It is one of the most profitable banks in Serbia with outstanding operating efficiency and strong branch network. UCB is 100% owned by UniCredit Spa, Italy.

Text of the PIP
Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)
If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).
IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.
Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
