Executives from Poland’s crop of FTSE graduates are preparing to school a new class of global equity investors in the country’s stormy politics and economics after the promotion. Senior officials at Bank Pekao SA, the nation’s second-largest bank, and AmRest Holdings SE, which manages the Starbucks, PizzaHut and KFC brands in continental Europe, are ready to make Poland’s case.
