Local banking sector should be mostly Polish -c.bank head-designate

WARSAW, May 20 (Reuters) - Poland’s central bank governor-designate Adam Glapinski called on Friday to reverse the present ownership structure in the Polish banking sector, which is 60-percent owned by foreign investors.

“60 percent of domestic (investors’ share) and 40 percent of foreign will be a good situation,” Glapinski told parliamentary panel.

Polish banking sector is dominated by giants such as UniCredit, Santander, ING, and Raiffeisen, but some of them are withdrawing.

Most recently state-controlled Alior Bank bought Bank BPH from U.S. GE Money. (Reporting by Pawel Sobczak and Marcin Goettig; Writing by Marcin Goclowski; Editing by Agnieszka Barteczko)
