Investing in Dividend Stocks in Poland

For those who are new to investments, investing in dividends stocks in Poland basically means that you invest in the shares of a company which sends you a part of their profits.

Rights which come with investing in dividend stocks in Poland

In return for buying shares in a company, a dividend investment in Poland offers you two types of rights:

1. You have the right to take part in voting a board of directors who can run the business;

2. You have the right to be paid a share of the profits of the company, at the board’s discretion. This comes under the form of dividends. When the company results are made public by the board of directors at the end of every quarter, they will also make public, if any, the amount of dividends which will be paid per share. Therefore, for example, if a company makes public an USD 0.50 dividend for a certain quarter and you own 100 shares, you will be sent into your bank account USD 50.
