The U.K. and Germany dominate the European brand landscape. The U.K.'s Top 10 brands comprise a total value of EUR 137 billion, closely followed by Germany.

Gerhard Hrebicek, scientific director and executive director of the European Brand Institute Vienna, summarized three significant findings:

"1. European brand management is sophisticated. More than two-thirds of the Top 50 brand corporations manage brand portfolios.

2. Great potential for the development of Eastern European brands.

The Russian telecommunications brand Beeline and the Slovenian household appliances brand Gorenje can be held up as examples for other Eastern European countries. 3. Brands create prosperity - the future of Europe depends on strong brands, which create growth, jobs and identities for national economies."

Finland and Switzerland have the highest Top 10 brand value/GDP ratios with 31.14% and 26.13%, respectively. The European average is 9.3%, while Russia (1.13%), Bulgaria (0.48%), and Romania (0.05%) trail behind.

"Our top position in the brand value ranking attests the particular brilliance of Raiffeisen and the success of the coordinated brand identity. This is a result of the Raiffeisen bank group's good national and international cooperation," explains Walter Rothensteiner, general director of the Raiffeisen Zentral Bank.

"As one of the largest gambling providers in the world, we see the brand as an important part of our Company's success. We serve the most significant gambling providers throughout the world and so, in the sense of "ingredient branding," make the brands of our business partners successful as well," explains Franz Wohlfahrt, general director of Novomatic AG.
