WARSAW, April 3 (Reuters) - Poland’s largest bank PKO BP this year aims to beat 2013 profit helped by growing net interest income and contributions from acquisition Nordea Bank Polska, as well as by economic recovery.
Net profit of the state-controlled lender fell to 3.2 billion zlotys ($1.06 billion) from 3.7 billion in 2012, reflecting the impact of record-low interest rates.
“We want our profit to be higher than last year,” Zbigniew Jagiello said in an interview with Rzeczpospolita daily.
“Net interest income dynamics will change (positively) for sure,” he said in the interview.
