With the potential for higher returns comes higher risk.

Equities can be volatile, meaning their value can rise or fall sharply at any time. So, when you sell shares, you could get back less than you invested. You could even get nothing back. If a company goes out of business, its shareholders are likely to lose all their investment. Equity investors may not be prioritized for pay-outs if a company's assets are disposed of.


There are many reasons for investing in equities, including the following.

  • The money you invest (your capital) has the potential to grow over time.
  • You can receive regular payments from your investment in the form of dividends.
  • Equities can help you spread risk when used as part of a diversified investment portfolio. This is because different types of investment act in different ways and can go up and down at different times.

Put simply, an equity is a share in a company. Equities refer to the publicly traded shares of a company listed on the Saudi Exchange. Owners of these shares become part owners of the company. This gives them the right to have a say in how the company is run and to receive part of the company’s profits in the form of dividends.
