Warsaw Stock Exchange: record number of IPOs

63 IPOs this year, more than a record 1997. Importantly, it includes 8 foreign companies, and more are to debut till the end of this year. In Europe, WSE is second only to London market as far as number of IPOs are concerned.

And this not counting New Connect, a fast-track market for small but hot companies which opened in August and already lists 13 companies.

Poland edges towards stock-based development model (anglosaxon) instead of bank-centered (German), which I personally find very positive – more dynamism, openness and free market access to capital.
