Investing in Equities

Investing in equities means buying stocks and shares in companies listed on the stock exchange. Historically this brings greater rewards than invesing in bank accounts and bonds as you have the possibility of gaining not only a dividend - a proportion of the company's after tax profits distributed to shareholders - but also a capital appreciation. If the price of the shares goes up after you buy them then you have made, on paper at least, a capital gain. But with these increased rewards comes greater risk as the value of shares can go down as well as up, which means you risk losing your investment if the price of the shares falls.
