A year ago, not a lot seemed to indicate that the year prove so beneficial for investors in Poland. The yield on Polish bonds fell to their lowest levels in history, while the WIG index gained nearly 26 percent, reports Puls Biznesu.
Investment fund managers fully took advantage of these conditions and over 80 percent of them noted a positive return. The average return on Polish universal stock came to 17.7 percent, yet two funds managed to exceed the benchmark WIG.
The best performance was noted by Copernicus Akcji Dywidendowych, managed by Bartosz Arenin, which increased its portfolios by 31.7 percent to reach zł.1.2 million. Second in terms of yield is Quercus Agresywny, which earned 28.7 percent with portfolios now valued at zł.0.5 billion.
As for 2013, Bartosz Arenin sees continued potential for profit on the stock market, as long as politicians in Europe and the US do not drop any unwelcome surprises.
