The main types of risk to which the PZU Group is exposed includes credit risk (in particular risk related to bank credit portfolio), actuarial risk, market risk (in particular interest rate risk, foreign exchange risk, and risk related to financial instruments and commodities), liquidity risk, concentration risk, operational risk, compliance risk and models risk.
In connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, increased risk was recorded in selected areas, in particular interest rate risk, credit risk, liquidity risk and mortality risk.
When managing the various risk types, the PZU Group identifies, measures and monitors risk concentration. To meet the regulatory obligations imposed on groups identified as financial conglomerates, a model to manage significant risk concentration in the PZU Financial Conglomerate was implemented in 2020 in keeping with the requirements of the Supplementary Oversight Act. Regulated subsidiaries monitor and submit regular reports to the leading entity in the financial conglomerate (PZU) on the measures and data supporting identification of risk concentrations. In the case of identification of an excessive risk concentration, appropriate management actions are implemented on the level of the given entity or the whole financial conglomerate.
