Insurance

Insurance and reinsurance are building blocks of the financial market, but these activities are heavily regulated, particularly if any aspects of such activities are to be outsourced to external entities.

Aside from insurance and reinsurance companies, insurance brokers play an extremely important role in distributing the insurance products. The Polish insurance market also comprises insurance and reinsurance companies from other EU member states, which are entitled to operate in Poland without requiring any permits from the Financial Supervisory Authority (KNF), whether as branches or otherwise.

The Financial Supervisory Authority supervises the (re)insurance industries and is authorised to license, supervise and/or impose sanctions on national entities operating on this market. The FSA also has certain rights regarding other EU state insurance and reinsurance companies which operate in Poland.
