Ensuring the safety of the funds entrusted by clients is a priority in the Bank Millennium Group’s activity. Efficient management of this area is governed by the policies of information security, prevention of abuse and risk management, code of ethics and best market practices, which are in force both at the Bank and in the Group’s Companies. The Bank’s internal regulators serve the prevention and identification of various risks related to the conduct of banking business. Employees are trained regularly on the rules for preventing abuse and ensuring protection of the clients’ funds and data.

The rules and standards to ensure compliance with internal and external regulations are described in the “Compliance Policy” for the Bank Millennium Group. When monitoring compliance with internal and external regulations, Bank Millennium considers the following issues to be particularly important:

  • preventing money laundering and financing of terrorism,

  • preventing and managing conflicts of interest;
  • observing ethical principles;
  • restrictions on personal transactions and protecting sensitive information related to Bank Millennium, financial instruments issued by the Bank and information related to the sales / purchase of such instruments
