Polish regulator initiates capital buffer review for big banks

The Polish Financial Supervision Authority asked the country's Financial Stability Committee to issue opinions regarding the change of other systemically important institution buffers for several Polish lenders.

The FSA proposed to increase the OSII buffer to 1.0% of the total risk exposure from the current level of 0.75% for Poland's largest lender PKO Bank Polski SA and to 0.75% from 0.5% for Bank Pekao SA

The FSA is also considering lowering the buffer for Commerzbank AG unit mBank SA to 0.5% from the current level of 0.75% and removing Getin Noble Bank SA and Millennium BCP unit Bank Millennium SA from the list of Polish other systemically important institutions.

In addition, the regulator asked the Financial Stability Committee to issue an opinion on imposing an OSII buffer of 0.25% on Alior Bank SA.

The final decision regarding the buffers will be taken by the FSA after the committee issues its opinions.

Alior believes that its plans to start offering dividends from 2020 will not be affected as the potential imposition of the buffer was taken into account in its strategy, news agency PAP said June 18, citing the bank.
