Key considerations


  • Direct ownership
    When you buy Australian shares, you become a part-owner of that company. This means you have full shareholder rights, which often include the right to vote and priority access to new stock releases.
  • Diversification
    You can invest in a wide range of listed companies and industry sectors, helping reduce the risk in your portfolio.
  • Capital gains
    Your shares have the potential to provide capital gains. If you buy shares at a certain price and then are able to sell later at a higher price, you can make a profit.
  • Dividends
    If your shares pay dividends, you’ll receive regular payments which are a percentage of company profits.



  • Market risk
    Shares can drop in value, meaning you will make a loss if you sell your shares for lower than what you purchased them for. 
  • Volatility
    Share prices can vary depending on a range of factors including market, economic and company specific conditions which may result in the value of your investment declining. 
  • Company risk
    If the company you invest in fails or underperforms, you might lose some or all of your money.
  • Dividend risk
    Dividends are not guaranteed and a company may decide to reduce or even stop paying dividends at any time.
