Benefits of Equity Investment
Equity or shares investment refers to the buying, holding or
selling shares in companies on the stock market. The aim is to
maximise income from dividends and generate capital gains.
Prudent investment in shares has many benefits,
the main benefit being a 12% long term average return on
investment. This long term average outperforms direct property
ownership and cash deposit offerings.
Around 6.7 million or 41% of adult Australians
are company shareholders. Most were introduced by large scale new
ASX listings such as Telstra and Commonwealth Bank.
