Stocks (equities)

Equities represent ownership in a company where you have an opportunity to participate in the success of the company in either the form of dividends or capital gains. Stocks can be purchased either directly or through equity mutual funds and exchange traded funds which provide diversification to the investor.

Stocks might be right for you if:

  • You are looking for potentially higher returns
  • You have a long time horizon
  • You are willing to assume some risk
