INVESTMENTS: Diversify your investments
Investments are an integral part of my long-term financial planning. By investing in financial instruments that have value and can be traded between parties, I diversify my opportunities for additional income.
Investment is a general term for different types of investments that can be bought and sold, including:
One of the forms of investments are shares. Shares can be bought in different companies, making me the owner of a part of that company.
The value of the share is determined by its performance, which is based on many factors, including:
- Changes in the economy
- Business performance
- Different and unforeseen events that happen in the world
It should be taken into account that, like any investment, even investing in shares has risks and is often an unsustainable investment.

Through Raiffesien Bank, I can invest in various financial instruments.

What are shares, ETF and RCM?
Shares are a form of equity representing the ownership interest of shareholders in an entity (a company, partnership, or trust) and are realized in the form of shares, including common or preferred shares. Shareholders can benefit from capital gains when they sell the shares (assuming the share price has increased in value). Shares are traded on stock exchanges, and their price fluctuates throughout the time the exchanges are open. RBKO gives its clients access to trade shares on all the world's stock exchanges. There is no minimum value to invest in shares.
Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF) are investments that include a collection of instruments such as stocks, commodities, bonds, or a mix of investment types. ETFs are traded on the stock exchange just like stocks. ETF prices fluctuate throughout the day as ETFs are bought and sold continuously, unlike mutual funds, which trade only once a day after the market closes.
A Mutual Fund (RCM) is a financial instrument that combines the assets of shareholders to invest in instruments such as shares, bonds, money market instruments, and other assets. Mutual funds are operated by professional money managers, who allocate the fund's assets and try to produce capital gains or income for the fund's investors. A mutual fund's portfolio is structured and maintained to match the investment objectives stated in its prospectus. Mutual funds give small or individual investors the opportunity to use professionally managed portfolios of stocks, bonds, and other securities.
