Bank Pocztowy SA
Information for press by
Bank Pocztowy SA
Bank Pocztowy is a retail bank for individual clients with a supplementary offer for micro-enterprises and small enterprises.
It provides safe and transparent financial services in its own branches and in Post Offices throughout the country.
Our bank was founded in 1990 in Bydgoszcz. The shareholders of Bank Pocztowy are Poczta Polska Spółka Akcyjna
[Polish Post] (holding 75% minus 10 shares) and Powszechna Kasa Oszczędności Bank Polski S.A. (holding 25% plus 10 shares). The strategic partnership with its majority shareholder provides Bank Pocztowy with Poland’s largest financial services distribution network.
As Bank Pocztowy is one of the most dynamically developing banks in the Polish market, in 2011, the number of its Clients exceeded one million. The dynamic development is based on the Strategy for the years 2012–15. Consistent implementation of the strategy results, for example, in a high rate of increase in the number of maintained accounts — from 230 thousand
as at the end of 2009 to 850 thousand in mid-2013. Consequently, for the last two years, the Bank has been among the leaders in terms of the number of newly opened accounts in Poland*. With the potential of Polish Post Offices ensured, the Bank intends to keep up the high growth rate. Currently, the Bank services 1.4 million Clients.
The offer of Bank Pocztowy features simple and customer-friendly financial products. The Bank’s target group are residents
of towns of up to 50 thousand inhabitants, Nestors, micro-enterprises, as well as small and medium enterprises. The Bank’s network comprises more than 270 branches (including more than 230 small facilities in post offices, as at the end of July 2013) and keeps expanding. Ultimately, the Bank’s network will comprise 400 branches. Moreover, the Bank is present in the Polish Post Network of 8 thousand post offices, including around 2 thousand Post Office Financial Stands — separate counters reserved for financial services. Such an extensive sales network offers unique opportunities of reaching the targeted customer segments, in particular persons residing outside large cities.
Bank Pocztowy offers customer-friendly financial products in a traditional network but also focuses on the developing distribution channels: its website and call centre. The Bank pays attention to understandable communication — presenting all
the features and costs of products in a clear manner.
Bank Pocztowy offers to its Clients current and savings accounts, debit and credit cards, cash loans, mortgage loans,
as well as insurance — together with banking products or as independent policies. The Bank’s services are addressed to retail Clients, as well as micro-enterprises and SMEs.
Financial education plays an important role in the bank’s activities. Bank Pocztowy aims at convincing the group of persons who have never used banking services to start using services offered by the financial sector. Thus, it pursues its social mission — e.g., by presence at Universities of the Third Age, campaigns such as: “Socks on your feet! Money on your account!”,
as well as dissemination of expert materials in the media.
High quality of Bank Pocztowy’s offer is confirmed by numerous industry awards received in recent years. The Post Office Nestor Account was selected as the best account for seniors by the following newspapers: Rzeczpospolita, Polska The Times and Dziennik Gazeta Prawna. The Post Office Standard Account was awarded as the best account for traditional clients, using banking services in a branch or over the phone (Polska The Times). This account is also a five-time winner in rankings
of traditional accounts prepared by Gazeta Wyborcza. The Post Office Nestor Account also received the Client's Laurel (Discovery of the Year 2010) — a distinction awarded by the clients. In June 2011, the Bank received the Premium Brand award (“Brand of High Reputation”). In 2012, Bank Pocztowy ranked first in the prestigious ranking of Miesięcznik Finansowy Bank in the mortgage banks category.
Bank Pocztowy also received a distinction in the 7th edition of “The Best Annual Report” competition
in which the best annual reports for 2011 were selected.
