The Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE)
The first state-organized stock exchange in Poland was the Warsaw Mercantile Exchange organized in 1817 followed by the Warsaw Commodities Exchange founded in 1874. The Warsaw Mercantile Exchange was closed during World War I and re-opened after the war as the Warsaw Money Exchange which lasted until World War II. In 1991, the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) was opened with only five stocks listed, 112 buy and sell orders, and a turnover of only 1,990 złotys ($2,000). Today, the Warsaw Stock Exchange is the largest national financial instruments exchange in Central and Eastern Europe and one of the fastest-growing exchanges in Europe.
