Investing in Poland ADRs / Polish Stocks List
Despite the fact that the Warsaw Stock Exchange would be one of the most important stock exchanges in Central and Eastern Europe, there are no Poland ADRs trading on major US stock exchanges like the NYSE or the NASDAQ. Nevertheless, there is a good and diversified selection of Poland ADRs representing different sectors of the Polish economy that trade on the OTC market. Many of these stocks may have exposure to other Eastern European markets.
In addition, investors interested in Poland ADRs should check out our Poland ETF list and our complete list of Eastern Europe closed-end funds, as the NYSE listed Central and Eastern Europe Fund, Inc (NYSE: CEE) has had, in the past, close to 1/5th of its portfolio allocated to Polish stocks. Our Eastern Europe ETF Region Wide list may also include ETFs invested in Poland stocks.
Note: Stocks delisted from the OTC (whether due to mergers, acquisitions or for other reasons) have been left in the table (as their websites still provide a good feel for the company and the local market) and may still trade on local or other important European stock exchanges (e.g. London, Amsterdam etc). They may also be holdings of country or region specific ETFs or Indices.

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.
