What Are Shares?
Shares represent a proportion of the ownership of a company.
The Shares that are most common to trade are from publicly traded companies in the stock market. However shares are also available in small businesses.
For long term investors companies issue shareholders a cut of the profit called dividends. It is in the best interest for the company to issue shares on the stock market for the following reasons.
  • New finance
  • An exit for founders that want to cash in on their investment.
  • A mechanism for investors to trade shares
  • Valuation for the company
  • Incentivize staff that holds shares in their company
  • A method to raise the companies profile
Shares from various indices can be traded by CFD or as a Spread bet.
