Polish Financial Stability Committee highlights key sources of risk for banks

The difficult financial situation of several financial institutions and the possibility of their problems spreading to other market participants is the key source of systemic risk for the financial sector in Poland, according to the country's Financial Stability Committee.

The committee also said that foreign currency mortgage portfolios held by banks operating in Poland remain an important source of risk for the sector, mainly due to the legal risks associated with court disputes between lenders and their clients, particularly in the context of the European Court of Justice's October ruling, which sided with forex mortgage holders.

The committee further pointed to high activity on the housing market and called on banks to remain cautious when assessing the creditworthiness of clients applying for housing loans, especially those buying properties for investment purposes.

In addition, members of the committee recommended keeping the anti-cyclical buffer for banks at zero percent, with the Polish finance ministry also confirming the lack of a need to raise the buffer at this point.
