ank Pekao SA has announced the opening of its first representative office abroad in Mayfair, London.
In line with its new strategy, the Polish bank’s management team has continued to invest in its corporate and investment banking franchise.
The bank’s new office is located at 16 Berkeley Street in Mayfair, London.
Michał Krupiński, CEO at Bank Pekao SA (pictured above), said that it was imperative for a bank with a strong international DNA to remain close to its clients and investors.
“Regardless of the outcome of the ongoing Brexit negotiations, Britain will remain an important partner for Poland and Polish companies.
“The economic exchange between the two countries is supported by the international ambitions of Polish corporates, the entrepreneurial spirit of Poles living in the UK, and British investors’ growing interest in Poland.
“Our new representative office in London will help facilitate cooperation between the two markets.”
Roksana Ciurysek-Gedir, management board member at Bank Pekao, who will be responsible for the international and the London-based office, added: “With this new presence, Pekao will be able to both strengthen these relationships and showcase the success of the Polish economy to the UK market.
“We want to be a facilitator of global connections on behalf of our clients and investors.”
