Family Firms as a potential source of growth for the Warsaw Stock Exchange

Szymon Filipczak    


The Warsaw Stock Exchange  has been growing rapidly since its establishment. Privatization program undergone via the public market was one of the crucial factors that contributed to this growth. Currently, very few State-owned companies that might go public have left. The main goal of this article is to discuss the possibility that family firms will step into the State?s shoes and become a more meaningful source of new issuers for the WSE. This paper identifies reasons for possible increase in family firms listings on the WSE as well as key elements for that to happen.
