This paper attempts to define the concept of participations and its manifestations in theRomanian economy. Within this research a number of questions related to participations as a form ofeconomic activity have raised, questions that led to the formulation of certain hypotheses which weretested based on data obtained from the analysis of national and international literature. This paper canbe considered as a start of a research that will extend to financial investments. The researchmethodology used in compiling this material presupposed theoretical documentation on the concepts,forms and ways of expression of participations, based on the literature, both native and foreign, whichwe managed to study. We appreciate however that the research we made allowed us to start with someassumptions, namely that both in the economic theory and in the financial - accounting practice, theconcept of participations is insufficiently clarified and defined. Broadly, any participation is a financialinvestment due to the upward evolution trend which the participations and the combinations ofcompanies are facing nowadays.
