Until 1964 the bank functioned as a foreign trade bank.

In conformity with the regulations of 1966 the bank carries out settlements and the crediting of foreign trade, receives credits from abroad and grants them abroad, and performs valuta operations in conformity with the foreign exchange plan, as approved by the Ministry of Finance of the Polish People’s Republic. The Bank Handlowy is an authorized agent of the International Bank for Foreign Cooperation (MBES). A current account in transferable rubles has been opened in the MBES in the name of the Bank Handlowy. All receipts, even proceeds of loans, are entered in this account, and all payments for the use of other banks that are members of MBES are made from this account. The share capital of the bank is set at 1,200 million zlotys.
