New Generation Financial Center

For over 30 years, Poland has been developing its financial center, crucial for building 
a modern and dynamic economy. Financial institutions provide innovative and secure services to millions of customers and finance the growth of entrepreneurs.

The Polish financial center represents hundreds of thousands of jobs, cybersecurity centers, research and development hubs, and hundreds 
of innovative fintechs. From being very local, the Polish financial center
is increasingly becoming a part of the global financial network, serving customers not only along the Vistula River but around the world.

The changing geopolitical landscape compels us to set new goals that reflect Poland’s growing ambitions, including in the financial sector. The next-generation financial center 
will not only be one of the key drivers of the national economy’s development but also 
a stimulator for enhancing its competitiveness, innovation, and internationalization.

Future Finance Summit

vision and goals

The Future Finance Summit will provide an opportunity both 
for discussions about the new role of the financial sector 
in Poland’s economic agenda and for expressing the ambition 
to build a next-generation financial center as part of the Future 
Finance Poland initiative.

During the Future Finance Summit, key initiatives and achievements 
of the Polish financial sector will be presented.

The Future Finance Summit is also an opportunity for:

  • networking with domestic and international experts,
  • a forum for market participants to engage in dialogue with representatives of public institutions,
  • building partnerships,
  • and creating new value in the financial market.
