Citi Handlowy has one of the highest capital ratios in the banking sector – the bank’s Tier1 capital ratio leveled at 20.1% in 2021, that is, 9.4 p.p. above the regulatory requirements (the highest surplus among all banks in Poland).


The bank distributes a majority of its profit to its shareholders on a regular basis, and such profit distribution is approved by the Polish Financial Supervision Authority only for banks with the most stable market position (only 4 banks were allowed to distribute up to 100% of 2021 profit as dividend, including Citi Handlowy).
