imposed an additional requirement on Tuesday on PKO BP,
the largest bank, asking it to set aside more capital to offset
risks from its portfolio of foreign currency mortgages.
"The Polish Financial Supervision Authority imposed on the

of the foreign currency mortgage loans for households, at
individual level amounting to 0.83 percentage points," PKO said.

percentage points of the foreign currency loans portfolio.
