WHERE TO FIND US
HOW TO CONTACT US
The essence of the service is to accept from a customer an order regarding a financial instrument and transfer the order to another entity that will complete it. The Brokerage Office acts as an agent for customers in purchase or sales transactions regarding various instruments (including stocks, bonds, derivatives) quoted on selected markets in Poland and abroad. This service enables our customers to make individual investment decisions that will be executed on the day chosen by a customer. Furthermore, in addition to accepting and transferring an order for completion, our brokers may provide market information that is available to general public. Investment decisions of our customers who use the investment advisory service may be preceded by a relevant recommendation regarding the selected financial instrument.
The Brokerage Office provides this service under the permit granted by the Polish Financial Supervision Authority, uniquely on condition that a customer has previously entered with the Brokerage Office into an agreement for acceptance and transfer of orders to purchase or sell financial instruments. The said agreement and the Regulations applicable to acceptance and transfer of orders to purchase or sell financial instruments define the principles based on which the Brokerage Office offers a given brokerage service, inclusive of the principles applied to acceptance of orders and any other instructions regarding financial instruments.
As required by the Polish law provisions implementing the MiFID, the Brokerage Office may begin accepting and transferring orders to purchase or sell financial instruments once a customer has replied to questions provided in a questionnaire assessing the suitability of financial instruments and services for customers of the Brokerage Office (MiFID questionnaire). The questionnaire completed by a customer enables the Brokerage Office to establish
