On behalf

Association of Polish Banks

we are pleased to invite you to participate in






2018, 14th of November

Hotel Marriott, Warsaw


     The Congress of Derivatives Instruments Market is organized by the Polish Bank Association continuously since 2010. Every year, it gathers participants representing both banks and other financial institutions, representatives of law firms, consulting companies and risk management companies using derivative instruments, as well as representatives of the local financial market regulator, i.e the Ministry of Finance, the Polish Financial Supervision Authority and the National Bank of Poland.

…..The 9th Congress will deal with current and most important problems and legislative proposals concerning the financial market (mortgage bonds, benchmarks, hedge accounting, new rules for offering financial instruments …), as well as political events such as Brexit and its consequences for the financial market.

…..New Capital Market Strategy will be discussed – a breakthrough document not only for investment companies, but also for i.e. companies that would like to raise funds for the development from capital market.

…..Brexit is an unprecedented event in post-war Europe, and its consequences for european economy and firms are not yet fully explained. However, everyone assumes that the „hard brexit” scenario may cause big confusion in the activities of Polish firms who have business relations with the Great Britain or operating on international financial markets. At the Congress, we will have first-hand information about what kind of impact Brexit will have i.e. on ISDA documentation or legal and regulatory environment.

…..An important challenge for all financial market participants will be the implementation of the EU WMD Regulation on the benchmarks used in financial contracts, which will also concern commodity market indexes and most likely new benchmarks pertaining to the impact on the natural environment. It may turn out that from January the 1st, 2020, the market will operate on the basis of new rates and rules of their use than it has been for the last decades.
