KDPW Supports Growth of the Capital Market with an Active Pricing Policy
The KDPW Group as a key infrastructure institution actively supports the growth of the Polish capital market and its participants. In pursuit of a strategy of business expansion through revenue diversification and service development, the KDPW Group regularly reduces its fees and offers temporary fee reductions in order to stimulate selected market segments.
KDPW will offer 13 temporary fee reductions in clearing, recording of securities and corporate action processing from 1 October to 31 December 2021.
“As an infrastructure provider, the KDPW Group companies not only deliver reliable services to financial market participants, including recording, safe-keeping, clearing and settlement of securities, but also follow a pricing policy which supports growth of the market and its participants. This is why we have decided to temporarily reduce more than a dozen fees for clearing, recording of securities and corporate action processing,” said Maciej Trybuchowski, KDPW President.
“The reduction of clearing fees will provide savings to brokers and custodian banks. The reduction of fees for recording of securities and corporate action processing will provide savings to issuers, investment funds and paying agents. The total estimated amount of the reductions is more than PLN 4 million (ca. 0.9 EUR million) in Q4 2021,” said Mr Trybuchowski.
Earlier this year, KDPW temporarily reduced fees for general meeting shareholder identification from PLN 2,500 to PLN 1,500. As a result, issuers whose shares are recorded in KDPW have saved approx. PLN 800 thousand (ca EUR 175 thousand). Since 1 July 2021, KDPW offers the option of advance payment for annual LEI renewal for 2 to 5 years, which reduces the cost of LEI renewal by up to 23 percent. In 2020, KDPW offered 32 temporary fee reductions to support diverse groups of capital market participants. Full List of fee reductions here
