Why Invest in Shares?
  • Shares (or equities) are one of the best long-term investments in the financial marketplace. They tend to outperform government bonds, corporate bonds, property and many other types of asset.
  • Share prices can go down as well as up so buying shares is not without risk, but over the long term, they can generate good returns.
  • Most shares offer income in the form of dividends, which are typically paid twice a year. Dividends can be seen as a reward for shareholders. These are paid when a company is profitable and has cash in the bank after it has satisfied all its obligations.
  • In most cases, the more profitable a company is, the higher the dividend payments. If a company is making substantial amounts of money and making significant dividend payments, it is usually considered a good investment so the share price rises.
  • Long-term capital growth comes about when share price increases over a period of time.
