The proposed profit distribution complied with the stance of the KNF expressed in its letter of 26 March 2020 and sent to insurance and reinsurance undertakings in which KNF indicates that having regard for the current situation involving the epidemic announced in Poland and its possible further adverse economic consequences as well as their expected adverse impact on the insurance sector, the regulatory authority expects that insurance undertakings retain the entirety of profit earned in previous years, notwithstanding the actions previously undertaken in this area.
In addition, KNF has emphasized that it is advisable for undertakings not to take other actions without making arrangements with the regulatory authority, in particular, actions falling outside the scope of their ongoing business and operating activity that could lead to weakening their capital base.
