Rwanda: Invest Your Money in Shares and Earn Big

Have you been thinking of how you can invest your money to earn a profit without necessarily taking bank loans to think of a bigger investment?

Look no further. Invest in a stock market.

According to investopedia, this is a market in which shares are issued and traded either through exchanges or over-the-counter markets. Also known as an equity market, it is one of the most vital areas of a market economy as it provides companies with access to capital and investors with a slice of ownership in the company and the potential of gains based on the company's future performance.

When one buys shares it means that whenever the company makes profits, then the shareholder is paid dividends after a certain period of time.

The more shares you buy the more expected returns on your investment.

Let us see how you can invest in shares at the stock market.

Always be on the lookout for available shares at the stock market through floatation. Then make your decision on which company to invest in.

Alternatively, you can buy shares through a stockbroker in the secondary market. This means that after companies float their shares through an Initial public Offer (IPO) which is normally the primary market, the company's shares can be bought through a stockbroker.

Like other investments, always remember to outline your personal goals and targets before you invest in shares.

Again, since shares are risky as prices normally fluctuate. It is important to learn how to take a risk since you can get back less than what you invested. It is always worth to know which of your goals fit in the share investment.
