We provide service to clients wishing to invest in both local and foreign capital markets, with a special emphasis on enabling the Albanian investor to invest in global securities. We are able to enable investors that have investable funds to buy securities and provide advice to clients who desire additional help in developing their investment portfolio. Operating in conjunction with an EU regulated investment bank platform, AKSIONER International Securities Brokerage sh.a. (itself regulated by the Albanian Financial Supervisory Authority) provides a safe environment for investors.
Service options include:
When you open a brokerage account, you will be asked to sign a new account agreement. You should carefully review all the information in this agreement because it determines your legal rights regarding your account.
Do not sign the new account agreement unless you thoroughly understand it and agree with the terms and conditions it imposes on you. Ask for a copy of any account documentation prepared for you.
We will ask you about your investment goals and personal financial situation, including your income, net worth, investment experience, and how much risk you are willing to take on. Be honest. We rely on this information to determine which investments will best meet your investment goals and tolerance for risk. If anyone who tries to sell you an investment before asking you these questions, that’s a very bad sign.
The new account agreement requires that you make three critical decisions:
1. Who will make the final decisions about what you buy and sell in your account? You will have the final say on investment decisions unless you give “discretionary authority” to AKSIONER via a Power of Attorney. Discretionary authority allows us to invest your money on your behalf, though one should consider if this is suitable for your investment profile.
2. How will you pay for your investments? Investors maintain a “cash” account with AKSIONER's investment bank affiliate in Denmark, that requires payment in full for each security purchase. But if you open a “margin” account, you can buy securities by borrowing money from your broker for a portion of the purchase price.
3. How much risk should you assume? In a new account agreement, you must specify your overall investment objective in terms of risk. Categories of risk may have labels such as “Capital Preservation” “Growth,” or “Speculation.” Be certain that you fully understand the distinctions among these terms, and be certain that the risk level you choose accurately reflects your age, experience and investment goals. Be sure that the investment products recommended to you reflect the category of risk you have selected. When opening a new account, AKSIONER will ask you to sign a legally binding contract to use the arbitration process to settle any future dispute between you and the firm.
What are some of the Investment Options Available?
Stocks and Bonds
Many companies offer investors the opportunity to buy either stocks or bonds. The following example shows you how stocks and bonds differ.
Let’s say you believe that a company that makes automobiles may be a good investment. Everyone you know is buying one of its cars, and your friends report that the company’s cars rarely break down and run well for years. You either have an investment professional investigate the company and read as much as possible about it, or you do it yourself.
After your research, you’re convinced it’s a solid company that will sell many more cars in the years ahead. The automobile company offers both stocks and bonds. With the bonds, the company agrees to pay you back your initial investment in ten years, plus pay you interest twice a year at the rate of 8% a year.
If you buy the stock, you take on the risk of potentially losing a portion or all of your initial investment if the company does poorly or the stock market drops in value. But you also may see the stock increase in value beyond what you could earn from the bonds. If you buy the stock, you become an “owner” of the company.
You wrestle with the decision. If you buy the bonds, you will get your money back plus the 8% interest a year. And you think the company will be able to honor its promise to you on the bonds because it has been in business for many years and doesn’t look like it could go bankrupt. The company has a long history of making cars and you know that its stock has gone up in price by an average of 9% a year, plus it has typically paid stockholders a dividend of 3% from its profits each year.
You take your time and make a careful decision. Only time will tell if you made the right choice. You’ll keep a close eye on the company and keep the stock as long as the company keeps selling a quality car that consumers want to drive, and it can make an acceptable profit from its sales.
Because it is sometimes hard for investors to become experts on various businesses—for example, what are the best steel, automobile, or telephone companies—investors often depend on professionals who are trained to investigate companies and recommend companies that are likely to succeed.
Since it takes work to pick the stocks or bonds of the companies that have the best chance to do well in the future, many investors choose to invest in mutual funds.
