Everyone has heard of the stock market, but few know how it works. A stock market is a place where shares are bought and sold.
Most people understand that a stock market is dominated by traders who speculate on the price of shares to make a profit on the difference between the buying and selling price. But investing in shares is so much more complex than these two basic propositions would suggest, and thus requires some deeper analysis.
Nishantha Hewavithane, Manager Research of the Colombo Stock Exchange will explain in detail the following topics - a brief introduction to the Colombo Stock Exchange, overview and the purpose of the share market, investing in listed securities, benefits and pitfalls/warnings when investing in shares. This seminar would be beneficial for potential investors, financial controllers, accountants and the general public.
