What Happens When I Open a Brokerage Account?

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.

Mutual Funds

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.



What Should I Do When I Do Not Know or Do Not Understand?

Ask Questions!

You can never ask a dumb question about your investments and the staff of AKSIONER who help you choose them, especially when it comes to how much you will be paying for any investment, both in upfront costs and ongoing management fees.

Your investment professional needs to understand your investment goals, whether you’re saving to buy a home, paying for your children’s education, or enjoying a comfortable retirement.

We will also understand your tolerance for risk. That is, how much money can you afford to lose if the value of one of your investments declines?

An investment professional has a duty to make sure that he or she only recommends investments that are suitable for you. That is, that the investment makes sense for you based on your other securities holdings, your financial situation, your means, and any other information that your investment professional thinks is important.

The best partnership AKSIONER can have with its clients is one where both sides fully understand your objectives and match investment recommendations to your goals.

What should I consider when making an Investment?

When you make an investment, you are giving your money to a company or an enterprise, hoping that it will be successful and pay you back with even more money. Some investments make money, and some don’t.

You can potentially make money in an investment if:

• The company performs better than its competitors.

• Other investors recognize it’s a good company, so that when it comes time to sell your investment, others want to buy it.

• The company makes profits, meaning they make enough money to pay you interest for your bond, or maybe dividends on your stock. You can lose money if:

• The company’s competitors are better than it is.

• Consumers don’t want to buy the company’s products or services.

• The company’s officers fail at managing the business well, they spend too much money, and their expenses are larger than their profits.

• Other investors that you would need to sell to think the company’s stock is too expensive given its performance and future outlook.

• The people running the company are dishonest. They use your money to buy homes, clothes, and vacations, instead of using your money on the business.

• They lie about any aspect of the business: claim past or future profits that do not exist, claim it has contracts to sell its products when it doesn’t, or make up fake numbers on their finances to dupe investors.

• The brokers who sell the company’s stock manipulate the price so that it doesn’t reflect the true value of the company. After they pump up the price, these brokers dump the stock, the price falls, and investors lose their money.

How Should I Monitor My Investments?

Investing makes it possible for your money to work for you. In a sense, your money has become your employee, and that makes you the boss. You’ll want to keep a close watch on how your employee, your money, is doing.

Some people like to look at the stock quotations every day to see how their investments have done. This can be done via your online account though some suggest that such active monitoring is probably too often. You may get too caught up in the ups and downs of the “trading” value of your investment, and sell when its value goes down temporarily—even though the performance of the company is still stellar. Remember, you’re in for the long haul.

Some people prefer to see how they’re doing once a year. That’s probably not often enough. What’s best for you will most likely be somewhere in between, based on your goals and your investments.

But it’s not enough to simply check an investment’s performance. You should compare that performance against an index of similar investments over the same period of time to see if you are getting the proper returns for the amount of risk that you are assuming.

While you should monitor performance regularly, you should pay close attention every time you send your money somewhere else to work.

Every time you buy or sell an investment you will receive a confirmation. Make sure each trade was completed according to your instructions. Make sure the buying or selling price was what your broker quoted. And make sure the commissions or fees are what your broker said they would be.

Serious complaints should always be made in writing.

You should also find out as much as you can about any investments that your investment professional recommends. First, make sure the investments are registered. Keep in mind, however, the mere fact that a company has registered and files reports with the relevant regulator doesn’t guarantee that the company will be a good investment. Still, you may be asking for serious losses if, for instance, you invest in a small, thinly traded company that isn’t widely known solely on the basis of what you may have read online.

Be wary of promises of quick profits, offers to share “inside information,” and pressure to invest before you have an opportunity to investigate. These are all warning signs of fraud.
