Stock Market

by Wealth Know How in Glossary

The stock market is the marketplace in which ‘listed’ shares are traded: it is also known as a stock exchange. Buyers and sellers indicate the price levels at which they are willing to buy or sell their shares: if the buy and sell price match, the shares are transferred.  The day-to-day trading of listed shares is known as the ‘secondary’ market.  The other function of the stock market is to allow companies to raise money to fund their business from investors.  Companies will sell shares directly to investors to raise the money: this is called the ‘primary’ market.  These markets co-exist.

Whether you are looking for simple ways to better manage your cash, or you are after a complete strategy on how to save for retirement, we can help you understand your options. It is important to have a vision for your future, but its knowledge not dreams that will ultimately deliver financial success.
