Project Description

The EBRD is considering an investment of up to PLN 50 million (€12 million equivalent) in the forthcoming IPO of Altus TFI S.A. on the Warsaw Stock Exchange.

Transition Impact

The EBRD plans to appoint an independent experienced board member to assist in institutionalising the business and provide guidance on corporate governance.

Furthermore, the EBRD’s investment will represent its continued commitment to supporting the development of Poland’s capital markets where asset management companies are expected to play an increasingly important role, particularly in the context of the recent pension reforms.
