Key Risks

The key risks associated with Stocks and Shares include the following. It is important to note that the list of risks is not exhaustive.
Similar to DLCs, the value of stocks are exposed to the fluctuation of the Securities market.
A stock price might fall below the purchase price or even to zero should the listed company performs poorly. Its shares may be suspended or even be de-listed, whereby there is no open market for its shares any more. If the delisting leads to corporate bankruptcy, investors may lose up to the capital invested.
A stock that is denominated in a foreign currency may lose value when converted to the local currency due to the movements in the exchange rates between the two currencies.
Investors' returns are impacted when purchasing (selling) a stock at a high (low) price or at the end (start) of a bullish business cycle.
Some risks only impact a particular sector. For example, the airline industry is impacted by changes in oil prices, climate change and terrorism.
