Choosing what type of investments to include in a stock portfolio can be challenging for the average investor. At Green Kenya Corporation we offer advisory services.

 Share:  share market trading, share market advisory, ups-down of market. Apart from being an asset class, shares also hold much larger importance. When an individual owns a share, he actually owns a percentage of the company. It’s an ownership interest in a corporation that provides equal distribution of profit as and when declared, in form of dividend.

 

Equity: Equity in general is assets minus the liabilities of the firm. The owner’s share in the asset. It can also be stated at value of an asset after all debt on the asset has been paid off.Stock or equity investments provide an investor with the highest possible returns. When investing in stock, you become an owner of a percentage of the company based on the number of shares you purchase, unlike a bond investor, who is a creditor. 

 

 Bonds: It’s a financial instrument, which can be issued by companies, municipalities, states and sovereign government, to raise fund from the market for the purpose of funding projects and activities. Individual investing in bonds, are called debt holders or creditors and they are entitled to get some fixed rate of interest on the principal amount. Some Bonds also trade like equities over exchange, other trade over the counter. Bonds in an investment portfolio provides the investor periodic interest revenue for the length of the bond.
