Customer experience, quality and standard of service have always been very important to us. In difficult times, the bar has been set even higher by our Customers. I am glad that thanks to the commitment of our employees and the ability to adapt to new conditions we have met these expectations. Accelerated digitalization has allowed us to provide many new remote banking options. The bank’s data shows that, on average, the frequency of customer contacts via chat and video advisor increased by 15% during the pandemic, and the number of mobile banking users went up by almost 20%. Our goal of being the best bank for the customers sets the priorities for the time ahead. There is no doubt that digital solutions have passed the test and will stay with us for good, so especially in this area we will be looking for new solutions so that our customers can bank remotely, the way they want to.
