Shares are suitable as part of a diversified portfolio, in which the investment is distributed over a number of assets, minimising the investment's risk. Investing in shares requires you to keep track of the companies that have issued the shares, as well as of the general market conditions.
You can invest in shares
- by buying the shares of a company directly on the stock exchange or
- indirectly by investing in equity and balanced funds or in investment bonds.
In addition, you can invest in equities by subscribing for shares in share issues or share sales where the present owners of the company sell part of their holdings to new investors.
The shares are in the form of book-entries and you will need a book-entry account for them. The book-entry account will be opened in the bank. After your trades have been completed you will receive a calculation to help you to settle capital gains or losses in taxation.
In order to be able to trade, you will need the Investor's service in addition to the book-entry account. With the service you can submit buy and sell orders and monitor their status and the value of your investments.
