What is a share?
Stock markets provide companies with an opportunity to raise money by selling parts of their businesses as shares, these can also be referred to as equities or stocks. Shares are the units of the ownership of a company. If you buy one, you own a part of that company and become a shareholder.
What House of Borse offers
We offer a derivative known as an equity CFD (contract for difference) rather than the underlying share itself. The price of the CFD is derived from the price of the share; the difference is that the holder of the CFD never owns part of the company.
