About Australian shares
When you buy shares in a company on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), you become a shareholder and part owner of that company.
The main reason people buy and sell shares is to generate wealth through potential share price appreciation or additional income through dividend payments, or both. With your shareholding, you also gain rights such as the right to vote on executive pay and proposed mergers, and the right to participate in capital raisings.
As with any investment, there are risks associated with trading shares. These risks can result in capital losses on your investment. Over the long-term, the Australian sharemarket as a whole has gained in value and outperformed other asset classes including cash and bonds as shown in the table. However, past performance is not indicative of future performance.
