The PKO Bank Polski SA Group conducts business activities as part of segments offering specific products and services addressed to specific groups of customers. The manner in which the business areas are divided ensures consistency with the sales management model and offers the customers a comprehensive offer comprising both traditional banking products and more complex investment products.
