We are all winners! The operational merger of the carved out business of DB Polska has become a fact!

On Friday November 9, 2018 the increase in the share capital of Santander Bank Polska S.A. related to the division of Deutsche Bank Polska S.A. was entered in the National Court Register, ending officially the legal stage of the demerger. We had only 72 hours to migrate the data of all Customers and execute the operational merger.

Treating the convenience to our Customers as a priority we have decided to adopt an innovative approach to the transaction. For the first time on the Polish banking market, the legal and operational merger as well as rebranding of the branches happened over one weekend, from November 9 to 11, 2018. We are the pioneers of this solution. Thanks to year-long preparations, advanced work and commitment and dedication of nearly 1,900 employees of both institutions the whole process proceeded smoothly and ended in success.

Santander Bank Polska S.A. has gained close to 400,000 new retail private banking and business customers. The transaction covered also the clients of DB Securities brokerage.

There have been no increases in the cost of using the products held as a result of the changes, while the Customers were given access to a range of cutting-edge products and services offered by Santander Bank Polska S.A.
