Polish stock market

I am an American that lives in Poland. I also have been in and out of the investment – stock market world for most of my life. What is my opinion of the Polish stock market? Very good.

However, if you want to know about the Polish stock market as a whole, it is very stable, solid regulations, even more than in the US as Polish GAAP is more conservative than US GAAP.

Polish stock market and currency risk

If you want to invest in the Polish stock market there is a foreign currency risk of course. I usually do not hedge currency, and take as part of the investment risk. However, if you are more conservative you can.

      US citizens pay taxes on world wide income no matter where they live but they get an exclusion and credit for foreign taxes paid. You have to pay Polish taxes of course.
