GDANSK, Aug 16 (Reuters) - Poland's biggest bank, PKO BP (PKO.WA), is expected to report a 73% year-on-year drop in second-quarter net profit, following provisions for loans in Swiss francs and an institutional protection scheme (IPS) contribution, a Reuters poll showed on Tuesday.

State-run PKO BP is expected to report a net profit of 335 million zlotys ($72.26 million) for the quarter, the survey of eight banks and brokerages showed.

That would result in a net profit of 1.75 billion zlotys for the first half of 2022.
