Shares Explanation

A share is a portion of the value of a company. Shares are also known as equities, stocks or securities. 

When you buy shares, you buy ownership in a corporation or financial asset. Being a shareholder entitles you to participate in the performance of the company and may entitle you to a distribution of any profits in the form of dividends if any are declared.

Shares are generally bought and sold on stock exchanges.

  • Past performance is no indication of future performance.
