According to the data of the National Depository for Securities, the number of brokerage accounts at the end of the first quarter was 1.46 million. This is the highest level since November 2014. Interest in brokerage accounts has been growing since the beginning of the pandemic. For almost 24 percent of investors on the stock market, the main motivation was to protect their capital against inflation, according to the National Investor Research 2021. Although stock markets experience large fluctuations related to the situation in Ukraine, investors are able to take advantage of such opportunities.

“Recently, due to increased inflation, we have noticed an increased interest in playing on the stock exchange, in various alternative investments, different from classic bank deposits. This is mainly due to the fact of raging inflation in Poland, the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, but also, inter alia, such a simple phenomenon as driving the demand. If we see that many people play on the stock exchange, we start to be interested in it, we start to read professional literature on this subject and we come to the point where we want to start taking our first steps on this stock exchange,” Cezary Chybowski, president of the board of Reliance Polska, author of the book “Playing the stock market”, said.
