PZU – as the parent company – through its representatives in supervisory bodies of subsidiaries and voting at their shareholder meetings, exerts an impact on the selection of strategic directions regarding both the scope of business and the finances of the Group members. As selected companies focus on their specialization and utilize their membership in the Tax Group, these companies render services to one another on chosen markets pursuant to an internal cost allocation model (under the Tax Group).
