Investing in Equties

Short/long term investment opportunity

An equity provides its holder with the opportunity to secure high yields in the short as well as the long term. In addition to short-term yields, equities may potentially bring higher yields compared with regular and other investment instruments which prove to be stable in the long run.


An equity entitles its owner to get a share of the yearly net profit of a company. Dividends are paid to the shareholders when the company decides to allocate dividends at its general assembly.

Capital gain

Means the income derived from the trading of an equity by exploiting price changes in the short/long term. No tax is charged on the income derived from the trading of equity by any investor, whether domestic or foreign. Equity trading involves the risk of loss if equities decrease in value, as well.

Tax advantage

The withholding rate applicable to income obtained from equity trading is 0%.
