Please remember, investment value can go up or down and you could get back less than you invest. The value of international investments may be affected by currency fluctuations which might reduce their value in sterling.
What are shares?
Shares, also known as stocks, are an investment in an individual company. Buying shares mean you 'own' a part of that company.
Share prices rise and fall in line with demand. If the value of your shares rise, you can choose to sell them at a profit. On the other hand, you could lose money if share prices fall.
Owning shares also entitles you to benefits such as receiving dividends and registering your votes in company activities.
