Remuneration policy

Bank Millennium Group conducts stable remuneration policy, tailored to the individual business lines and employee groups. In the last financial year no significant changes have been introduced to the policy.

Remunerations are determined with reference to the scope of tasks performed in the particular organisational units, level of responsibility of the employee and on the basis of analysis presented in financial market remuneration surveys. Remuneration is verified periodically based on evaluation of work results and market comparisons.

Variable remuneration components are a motivational part of the total remuneration. They are paid on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis – depending on the time horizon of assessed work results.

Employees of Millennium Group have been subject to bonus systems tailored to the specific nature of the business targets set for particular units.  The bonus pool depended on the level of the consolidated net profit plan of Bank Millennium Group.

Individual bonuses were awarded within the bonus pool on the basis of evaluation of work quality as well as the degree of commitment to fulfilment of targets set for the employees.

An important part of managing remuneration in the Bank is the remuneration policy defined for persons occupying management positions. It is a tool of supporting the management system of Bank Millennium Group and encourages particular care for the Bank’s long-term good as well as avoidance of excessive exposure to risk. It is described in “Report capital adequacy, risk and remuneration policy in 2016”.

The individual remuneration of persons covered by this policy, including Board Members, cannot exceed the adopted % of the reference level (100% currently) with respect to the total annual base. Moreover the pool assigned for variable components of remuneration of Members of the Management Board of Bank Millennium cannot exceed the share defined by the Supervisory Board in consolidated net profit of Bank Millennium Group (currently 2%).

The annual bonus pool for persons occupying management positions is awarded after prior analysis of the Bank situation as regards:

  • Actual business results: Net Profit, Result on Banking Activity, Cost/Income ratio, ROE;
  • Liquidity: Loans/Deposits ratio, value of liquid assets;
  • Capital adequacy ratios versus the KNF reference level.

Remuneration of Management Board

Determination of the terms and conditions of contracts and remuneration of the Management Board Members falls under the powers of the Supervisory Board.
