Why use Aktieinvest?
The investors can start with only 100 SEK in any stock. It is a good system for spreading the risk and for longterm savings. The customer kan make it as an automatic monthly saving or buy or sell at a selected date. Anyone can use the Internet or telephone to place their orders.
The difference between our system from buying shares through a banker or a broker is that our customers specify the mount they wish to invest in each company and pay in advance, rather than buying a certain number of shares and paying for them after the trade is made. In addition we guarantee every order, so no matter how little an investor wishes to buy or sell, the trade will be settled. But it is also possible to buy a certain number of shares as normal banker or brokers do.
In 1999 we started an mutual fund which invests in the OMXS30-index.

The participants invest the same amount of money, usually in maximum of four different stocks the feel will be markets best performers in 1 year. when the contest is over, the person whose portfolio has appreciated the highest is the winner.
