 | Published July 7, 2015  -  Deadline July 28, 2015

Clarification 17/07/2015: Please kindly note that the meaning of "financial product" in the Consultant Profile has been clarified as follows: Financial products and services may include, but are not limited to banking and savings accounts, investment products, loans, mortgages, insurance and some pension schemes. In the context of Poland REFF the Participating Financial Intermediaries will be distributing loans for the purpose of energy efficiency improvements in the residential buildings. Relevant expert knowledge (marketing, communication and capacity building) is required for successful implementation of the programme and the technical assistance assignment. Project Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the "EBRD" or the "Bank") is scaling up its operations of Sustainable Energy Financing Facilities in Poland. In 2011, the EBRD launched its first Polish Sustainable Energy Finance Facility, which was followed by PolSEFF II and PolSEFF-Leasing. These facilities (thereafter "PolSEFFs") were established in the form of credit lines extended by the EBRD to Polish financial institutions, to be on-lent to small and medium sized enterprises for eligible sustainable energy projects in the commercial sector. Building on the experience and lessons learnt from PolSEFFs and other EBRD residential energy efficiency ("EE") facilities, the EBRD is launching the Poland Residential Energy Efficiency Finance Facility ("Poland-REFF" or the "Facility"). Through the Poland-REFF the EBRD aims to on-lend up to EUR 200 million through Participating Financial Institutions ("PFIs") to eligible Sub-borrowers (the "Sub-borrowers") for eligible energy and resource saving sub-projects in the residential sector (dwelling and building level investments). The Sub-borrowers will include individuals, groups of individuals, housing associations, housing cooperatives, housing management companies ("HMC"), energy service companies (the "ESCOs"), vendors and service providers undertaking refurbishment and construction of private residential properties upon contract signed with owners for energy efficiency projects in the residential sector in Poland ("Sub-projects"). In Poland, the residential sector consumes about 40% of the country’s primary energy with space heating using the most energy. For covering heating needs of the residential building stock Poland depends on coal, which accounts for 41% of the energy mix for heating. This is the largest share of coal in the residential sector in the EU that leads not only to the high kgCO2/m2 values, but also to worrying concentration of harmful substances and air quality decline. For example, in Krakow due to coal and solid fuel combustion the concentration of harmful substances is more than triple of WHO norm. The housing stock in Poland consists of approximately 13.7 million dwellings with the total floor area of 980 million square meters. Detached single family houses (56%) and urban multi-family buildings (37%) are the most common residential properties. The existing residential properties consume on average 200kWh/m2 for space heating (EU-27 average around 130kWh/m2). New buildings are more energy efficient with average energy consumption of 136 kWh/m2 that is still higher than EU-27 performance value. The Poland-REFF is expected to initiate a self-sustaining market for investments in sustainable energy projects in the residential sector in Poland. This will be achieved by ensuring that PFIs become familiar with appraising and financing eligible energy efficiency and small-scale renewable energy investment projects in the residential sector. At the same time, potential Sub-borrowers are expected to expand their awareness and understanding of energy and resource saving benefits in the course of the Facility. Finally, local service providers, vendors and engineers may expand their offering to include and prioritise energy and resource saving solutions in the residential sector. Assignment Description: The implementation of Poland-REFF will be supported by a dedicated technical cooperation ("TC") package separate from the already ongoing TC assignment supporting the implementation of the PolSEFFs. The Poland-REFF TC will assist PFIs (e.g. retail banking teams) to identify and process large number of small energy efficiency projects proposed by households, housing associations and other eligible entities. Upon advice of the EBRD the Poland-REFF Project Consultant will cooperate with the consultants supporting implementation of the PolSEFFs (the frameworks for SMEs). The Bank now intends to engage a consulting company (the "Consultant") to support implementation of Poland-REFF. The Consultant will undertake coordination, Sub-project preparation, marketing and information campaigns and capacity building to the PFIs and Sub-Borrowers to support the implementation of Poland-REFF (the "Assignment"). The scope of services of the Consultant will be divided into two categories: Generic Tasks and Project Assessment Tasks. The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services: 1. Generic Tasks a. Establish a full-time Poland-REFF office in Warsaw and develop, maintain and update the operational tools, Operations Manual and energy saving calculator for eligible measures. b. Adapt and maintain the list of recommended sustainable energy technologies ("LEME") including categories of equipment and materials with specific minimum technical and environmental characteristics that are proven to result in fundamental and straightforward improvements in energy efficiency. c. Prepare and implement generic marketing activities as well as dedicated marketing/project origination activities to be deployed with PFIs. Develop a capacity building plan, which will target PFIs, Sub-borrowers and local experts. d. Prepare a market survey at the end of the assignment. The market survey will reflect market conditions for high-performing building energy efficiency technologies after the Poland-REFF. The market survey will be an assessment of the Facility impact and will cover all eligible measures and assess the market size, market penetration rates, a number of suppliers of eligible measures and describe the overall conditions at the market including capacity and awareness constraints. 2. Sub-project Assessment Tasks a. Ensure that the technical eligibility criteria of the Poland-REFF are adhered to and enhance the implementation of the Poland-REFF by ensuring that potential Sub-borrowers are appraised, based on the eligibility requirements and Sub-loans are processed according to Poland-REFF procedures. b. Assist perspective Sub-borrowers identifying sustainable energy opportunities by assessing technical and economic feasibility of the identified Sub-projects including performing energy assessments. For building level investments the Consultant will be required to perform Preliminary Assessment ("PA"), Simplified or Full Assessment ("SA" or "FA"). The Consultant will prepare deliverables for each type of assessment in the format agreed with the EBRD.

Project Description: The Polish capital market is among the most developed in the EBRD region. The country still holds a leading role in central Europe in terms of indicators such as market capitalisation, number of market participants, trading volumes and the number of listed companies. In addition, Warsaw is widely recognized as regional centre for the nascent central and eastern European (CEE) private equity industry and it is home to a relatively deep asset management industry. At the same time, and compared to similar emerging markets, Poland remains well behind in terms of long-term funding instruments for banks and enterprises. In 2014 growth of both bond and equity markets came to an abrupt halt. Unlike elsewhere in Europe, the number of Initial Public offerings (IPOs) fell, and share turnover slowed. In 2014 growth of both bond and equity markets came to an abrupt halt. Unlike elsewhere in Europe, the number of IPOs fell, and share turnover slowed.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the 'EBRD' or the 'Bank') aims to undertake a project to provide integrated capital market development advice in Poland (the 'Project'). Assignment Description: The Bank now intends to engage a consulting company (the 'Consultant') to conduct a benchmarking study on the key determinants that impact on the competitiveness of the Polish capital market and the Warsaw Stock Exchange, and to recommend improvement levers for the further development of the Polish capital market and its advancement to developed country status (the 'Assignment').

To the extent that a Consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purchased in connection with the provision of services (e.g. VAT on airline ticket) which is not otherwise recoverable by the consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the consultant of such expenses shall be treated as a reimbursable expense. Funding Source: It is expected that the Assignment will be funded by EBRD-Managed Donor Funds with a direct contribution from the Client.

THE CLOSING DATE FOR RECEIPT OF EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST IS EXTENDED UNTIL 24 NOVEMBER 2017 AT 16:00 UK TIME

Project Description:

The Polish capital market is one of the most developed in the EBRD Countries of Operations (CoOs). The country still holds a leading role in central Europe in terms of capital market indicators such as market capitalisation, number of market participants, trading volumes and the number of listed companies. The Polish capital market, supported by regionally competitive Warsaw Stock Exchange (“WSE”) is, for example, widely recognised as regional centre for the Central and Eastern Europe (“CEE”) private equity industry and it is also home to a relatively deep asset management industry.

However, the Polish capital market came to a critical juncture in the last few years: the number of IPOs has decreased, investors’ activity in the equity markets slowed down significantly (especially on the retail side) and the derivatives market has not performed well since 2014. In this context, Poland has requested support from the European Commission under Regulation (EU) 2017/825 on the establishment of the Structural Reform Support Programme ("SRSP Regulation"). The request has been analysed by the European Commission in accordance with the criteria and principles referred to in Article 7(2) of the SRSP Regulation, following which the European Commission has agreed to provide technical support to Poland, together with the EBRD.

In this context, the Polish Ministry of Finance (“MoF”) would like to closely cooperate with the European Commission and EBRD to develop a Polish Capital Markets Development Strategy (the Project) which could provide the buy-in across a broad range of stakeholders to enable the capital market achieving (in a perspective of 5 years) some development goals defined as:

  • becoming a major engine of economic development and an innovation catalyst for the economy;
  • (re)gaining the leading status in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe;
  • attracting (increasing the activity of) the leading Polish companies;
  • expanding WSE’s trade and post-trade services across other regional stock exchanges;
  • increasing the role of debt capital markets and corporate debt financing;
  • enhancing the role of competitive financial intermediaries in the development of the Polish capital market;
  • developing trade services for professional markets in the areas of fixed income, money market, interest rates derivatives and foreign exchange instruments.

Assignment Description:

The Bank now intends to engage a consulting company (the Consultant), under the SRSS-LC2 Framework, to assist and support the MOF with the following services/activities (the Assignment):

  • Service/Activity 1: Diagnostic review of the capital market in Poland and Identifying barriers to capital market development
  • Service/Activity 2: Developing recommendations for the Capital Markets Development Strategy in Poland and organising a workshop to present them to the stakeholders
  • Service/Activity 3: Support the MOF and participating institutions in the works on the Capital Market Development Strategy

The expected outcome of the Assignment is (i) reviewing and understanding of current conditions and impediments for the capital market development in Poland and preparing Diagnostic Report; (ii) developing the recommendations for the Capital Market Development Strategy in Poland including implementing roadmap; and (iii) supporting the MOF for the development of the Capital Market Development Strategy.

 

The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:

1. Diagnostic review of the capital market in Poland and identifying barriers to capital market development:

a. Present the potential benefits of well-developed capital markets for the Polish economy and financial system, in line with the goals set up in the Responsible Development Strategy;

b. Carry out a comprehensive diagnostic review of the capital markets in Poland. The Consultant will analyse thoroughly the Polish capital market environment: existing and lacking market instruments, market participants (such as banks, securities and private equity companies, retail, corporate and institutional investors, asset management industry etc.) and market infrastructure (such as government institutions, NBP, KDPW, KDPW CCP and WSE, etc.) in order to identify the impediments and challenges that limit the market’s development. The Consultant will also diagnose critically the level of development of financial intermediaries granting Polish equity and debt issuers and investors access to capital markets. The review will entail but not be limited to the level of services provided and access costs generated by the industry. The Consultant will also take into consideration the development goals set previously by the Steering Committee;

c. Conduct desk research as well as interviews with market participants; an interview list should be agreed with the MoF and the EBRD;

d. Prepare a report called “Diagnostic Report” summarising the findings and outcomes of the Activity 1 review process.

2. Developing recommendations for the Capital Markets Development Strategy in Poland and organising a workshop to present them to the stakeholders

a. Recommendations for the Capital Market Development Strategy:

The Consultant will develop recommendations for a capital market strategy based on the barriers and challenges identified in Activity 1 and the development goals set by the Steering Committee

The Consultant will provide the rationale, justifications and a clear set of arguments for each recommendation (taking into consideration best practices from the most developed foreign capital markets and sound judgement of strengths and deficiencies of the of Polish Capital Market). The Consultant will also provide a proposition of the sequence of introduction of the proposed reforms (an Implementation Roadmap). The topics of the strategy will include, but will not be limited to, concrete legal changes, institutional and regulatory reforms, capital market infrastructure and corporate governance reform, equity and corporate debt market improvement in both primary and secondary perspectives, derivatives market development, performance of the ecosystem of financial intermediaries and the financial system, enhancement in investment for institutional, retail and foreign investors. The expected impact on the growth of the secondary market liquidity and market velocity indicators in mentioned above areas should be one of the major evaluation criteria.

The Consultant must pay close attention to the specific needs of the Polish capital markets and professional financial markets (as OTC money, debt and derivatives markets), to the feasibility and time required for the implementation of the recommendations as well as to the right sequencing and factoring of priorities. In addition, the Consultant should take into account all potential legal, financial and operational impediments in the implementation of the recommendation. The Consultant should furthermore pay attention to the potential complexities that might arise from implementing each of the recommendations across different sectors, asset classes and investors.

The Consultant will prepare a report called “Recommendations for the Capital Market Development Strategy in Poland”.

b. Workshop with market stakeholders

The strategy prepared by the MoF and other institutions participating in the project will consist in a nation-wide plan for the authorities, identifying improvement levers and providing recommendations for the development of the capital market in Poland, including an implementation roadmap, where measures are divided into short-term actions with immediate impact, and medium-term actions to ensure sustainable development after the end of the TC Assignment. The implementation will be a comprehensive 5-year step-by-step action plan covering recommendations and required reforms described Capital Markets Strategy for Poland.

Poland: Benchmarking study on the governance and regulation of Polish private pension funds

 | Published August 6, 2015  -  Deadline September 4, 2015
cpvs

12/08/2015 Clarification: the deadline date for the receipt of EOIs has been extended to Friday 4 September 2015 at 5pm GMT.

Project Description:
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the 'EBRD' or the 'Bank') aims to undertake a benchmarking study on the governance and regulation of the Polish private pension funds as part of a project to provide integrated capital market development advice in Poland (the 'Project').

The Polish capital market is generally thought of as among the most developed in the EBRD region. The country still holds a leading role in central Europe in terms of indicators such as market capitalisation, number of market participants, trading volumes and the number of listed companies. Warsaw is widely recognized as regional centre for the nascent CEE private equity industry and it is also home to a relatively deep asset management industry.

At the same time, compared to similar emerging markets, Poland remains well behind in terms of long-term funding instruments for banks and enterprises. Bank refinancing is constrained given the underdevelopment of mortgage bonds and securitisation. In its operations in Poland EBRD finds that additionality is highest at long maturities and PLN issues and that primary bond issuance is often uncertain to succeed.

There have been intermittent discussions between the Bank and the regulator (KNF) around these transactions. The EBRD's Local Currency and Capital Markets team ('LC2') in 2012 delivered a comprehensive country assessment to the regulator and government, and our assistance on a new covered bond framework, and collateral reform were instrumental in moving legislative proposals forward.

The Polish capital market is now at a critical juncture. In 2014 growth of both bond and equity markets came to an abrupt halt. Unlike elsewhere in Europe, the number of IPOs fell, and share turnover slowed. The Polish market and its stakeholders, i.e. brokers, banks, regulators, exchange, clearing houses, institutional and retail investors etc. are faced with a number of challenges, both internal and external. Many of the earlier gains could now be reversed.

Assignment Description:
With about 9 per cent of GDP in assets under management, the Polish private pension funds ('OFEs') remain the principal local institutional investor. Experience in other countries with funded pension systems has demonstrated that these funds can achieve superior and better diversified returns, while prudently managing funds in line with the overall liability flow and risk preferences of an ageing population. A dynamic and well regulated local institutional investor base is essential for market development, including in novel asset classes such as infrastructure assets or private equity. Following the changes to the Polish pension system implemented since 2013, the industry has effectively stopped supporting local capital market liquidity. Nevertheless the government has examined proposals to raise the extraordinarily low private savings rate through additional voluntary pensions instruments.

The Bank now intends to engage an expert (either an individual or nominated by a consulting firms (the 'Consultant') to assess the current regulation of the Polish OFEs against benchmarks elsewhere in Europe and other emerging markets, and on that basis develop recommendations (the 'Assignment').

The principal objective of the assignment will be to assess the current regulation of the Polish OFEs against benchmarks elsewhere in Europe and other emerging markets, and on that basis develop recommendations to be addressed to the regulator. The recommendations will be based on well-defined objectives of the government (in terms of risk levels, degree of choice and competition). At the same time, innovations and reforms that have at times been examined by the government, such as voluntary pension instruments, can be developed further in this study.

This work will be presented in a report that will first be shared with the regulator and government, and then presented at a workshop that is open to market participants, government and the central bank.

Scope of Work
Specifically, the Consultant will be expected to provide Services that can be summarised as follows:

Activity 1: Review of current pension fund regulation
The Consultant will undertake an initial desk research, followed up by subsequent interviews over 2-3 days with the key market participants and the regulator in Warsaw.

Activity 2: Impact assessment of recent regulatory changes
The recent re-regulation of the private pension pillar has led to a number of adverse and unintended consequences, such as: overly risky asset concentration in a small set of large domestic publicly listed companies; limited gains from diversification across asset classes and foreign markets, i.e. foregoing the gains that are the basic rationale of private pension funds; costly operational business models given the largely passive shadowing of certain equity indices. Financial literacy and public recognition of the need for personal savings through pension funds remains extremely limited in Poland. There is a risk that remaining pension fund members may at some point withdraw funds in bulk or that the regulator may determine that the existing fund structure is no longer suitable to overall pension policy objectives and move more assets back into the state system. Most market participants therefore view the present industry structure as essentially unsustainable. The Consultant will provide a comprehensive analysis of the current situation that will serve as a basis for Consultant's recommendations and subsequent discussions the relevant stakeholders.

Activity 3: Comparison to best practices and recommendations
Poland's experience in redesigning the overall role of the funded pillar within the pension system is not atypical in emerging Europe. Other countries have similarly found that risks and costs within a private fund management industry are difficult to reconcile with overall expectations in social policy. Given the present context of limited enrollment within the OFEs, and a substantial stock of assets remaining in the funds, there is likely a better regulatory model that incentives industry outcomes more in line with policy objectives. The Consultant is to assess the present regulatory regime in Poland against best practice in the principal areas of fund management regulation. This will be illustrated based on at least one western European market and one emerging market.

Activity 4: Workshop
Following the conclusion of the research the Consultant will be expected to present the main conclusions and recommendations to EBRD and subsequently the clients (KNF and Ministry of Finance). The recommendations will then be presented in a workshop in Warsaw that will be open to market participants, the regulator, government and central bank representatives and to participants from neighbouring countries, and the broader European investor community. This forum may facilitate a joint discussion of efforts to develop both capital market infrastructure and the institutional investor base.
