— Polish companies that generate revenues mainly in foreign currencies are clearly supported by weakening of the local currency. The attractiveness of the gamedev sector, especially during the economic downturn, seems to be much better than other sectors - especially traditional and cyclical ones that lead to an unequal struggle with commodity prices and accelerating inflation. In addition, most large European companies are still exposed to huge political risk, in particular in the energy and fuel sectors. Despite adverse market conditions, local profitable gaming companies can be the green island of the Polish economy — says Paweł Sugalski, CFA, portfolio manager and founder of Smart Money fund, member of supervisory boards of gamedev companies and author of the book “Gaming on the Stock Exchange”.
