Key risk factors

We would like to warn you that price fluctuations of shares are higher in comparison to the change in the price of debt securities or units of traditional investment funds. The price fluctuation of company shares is due to the following:

  • the change in the assessment of corporate prospects: market changes, economic trends, technologies, laws and regulations, competition, etc., determine the demand for services of the company and thus are the key reason for the change of the price of shares
  • the change in market interest rates: the growing interest rates usually yield the rise in the performance of newly issued interest-bearing securities, while the price of publicly traded shares falls
  • changes in corporate management, organisational structure, supply and demand indicators for its products, etc.
  • price fluctuations of shares of other companies, irrespective of whether such shares are in the same or a different sector, listed in the same trading venue or in another trading venue, in the same country or abroad
  • liquidity needs of various market players: the price of shares falls if many market participants sell shares and rises if many market participants buy shares
  • turnover of shares (the number of shares bought and sold over a certain period)

When you invest, you have to understand and assume the foreign investment risk resulting from legal regulation and securities accounting standards that vary from country to country, also possible additional taxation in the country where securities are issued (the risk of having insufficient information about the laws and taxes applicable in the country in which/through which investments are made), and/or possible additional taxation because of the registration place of securities. AB SEB bankas is not responsible for taxation of income paid out for the owned and/or sold securities (dividends, coupons, etc.) and does not offer any withholding tax recovery service to customers.

We would like to note that if the company goes bankrupt, shareholders normally get nothing or are the last in line to receive part of the assets.
