ING Bank Śląski S.A. strives after the best standards of communication with the capital market. The Bank focuses its attention on reliable and transparent information and on equal treatment of all stakeholders as well as observes all the laws regarding disclosure duties of listed companies. Important financial and business information in the form of financial reports, current reports, investor presentations and editable files with key company data are at the same time presented to the broad capital market. Communication with investors and stock analysts rests with a dedicated unit – Investor Relations Bureau within the Finance Division.

Additionally, Bank representatives held over 70 face-to-face meetings or teleconferences with investors, analysts and delegates of rating agencies.
